My work here is done. We’re in my kitchen and I’m just sitting there watching the last few dishes come to the table and put in the dishwasher. The next thing I know, the dishes are drying and I’m out of here. It’s a fairly simple thing, but I don’t know what happened. I guess that my mind just went to sleep while I was mowing the lawn and was dreaming of my next meal.
So what’s the issue here? My mind is pretty clear. It was probably my head, and I know I had to clear it before I got back to work. Or not.
I know this sounds crazy, but you probably don’t want to take the time to clear your mind. You’re a busy professional.
I mean, how often do you need to clear your mind? When you’re working on a big project, perhaps you’re not in the habit of making yourself a cup of tea, or clearing your desk? Or maybe you have to get to a meeting? The truth is, most of us take a lot of mental energy just to get through every day. This is one of the big reasons why we burn more calories than anyone else.
I think it’s time. And by time, I mean the amount of time required to get work done, and it also refers to the amount of time required to write code. You could say that the work you do is done. But since you’re not doing that work (you’re watching TV or surfing the internet) then you’re not really putting in the work you’d expect to take to get things done.
It’s quite the opposite. You should be putting in the work you think you’re going to do. There’s a lot of people who are going to be doing work. You should be doing work you actually want to do. That’s where you’ll find the time to do the work you actually want to do.
The thing about code is that it takes time. If you dont put in some work theres no point in trying to code. If you are lazy or dont want to put in the work, youll find it hard to find the time to do the work you actually want to do.
I am a programmer, so I know the benefits of coding as well as any other programmer. But there are a lot of other things youll be doing that you dont even know you need to do. Like, for example, your dog needs a bath. Your dog doesnt need a bath. You dont need to do everything yourself.
It’s a myth that coding takes time. It takes a lot of time, but it doesn’t take any time at all. There is a reason that the most successful people at the top of coding careers usually have no coding experience whatsoever. And the reason why is that they have a full-time job and a full-time life and a full-time dog.
We know. In fact, we know a lot about coding. We have a pet dog named Zorro. He is very smart and very patient. However, he suffers from some serious coding issues. He tends to get bored and then he starts acting very strange. He will start walking around the room with his ears and tail up, then he will start running up walls and then he will start chasing other dogs. He will also start chasing us and then we have to get him to stop.
