Programmer as wizard, programmer as engineer
One immediate mistake we can make here is to believe that wizarding is somehow the sloppy, unprincipled, illegitimate version of engineering. Programmers can have good (if bitter) reasons for believing this, which we’ll get to in a minute. But on the face of it, wizarding is what programming should be most like. Wizarding is fun. Wizarding is pulling out 10 line script solutions to problems that seemed intractable to others.

The Most Important Question of Your Life | Mark Manson
If I ask you, “What do you want out of life?” and you say something like, “I want to be happy and have a great family and a job I like,” it’s so ubiquitous that it doesn’t even mean anything.

A more interesting question, a question that perhaps you’ve never considered before, is what pain do you want in your life? What are you willing to struggle for? Because that seems to be a greater determinant of how our lives turn out.

Fields Medalist Akshay Venkatesh Bridges Math and Time | Quanta Magazine
“Sometimes, people see things in you that you don’t see.”

...

“You start to see that, well, a thought you had some years ago comes back and sort of has grown, because you’ve seen other things in the meantime,” he said. “It’s funny, I never would have described myself as a patient person. But that’s just how it is.”

...

“You just talk about the essence of things.”

Ta-Nehisi Coates: Kanye West in the Age of Donald Trump - The Atlantic
It would be nice if those who sought to use their talents as entrée into another realm would do so with the same care which they took in their craft.

Michael Jackson did not just destroy his own face, but endorsed the destruction of all those made in similar fashion.

Moving Fast and Securing Things – Several People Are Coding
We have a culture of continuous integration and continuous deployment. The process of deploying code to production is very simple, and takes about ten minutes total. This results in a life cycle in which we deploy code to production approximately 100 times per day. We’ve built our SDL process to provide coverage without being blocking, and to emphasize self-sufficiency rather than having our team manually review every pull request.

Life is Short
If you ask yourself what you spend your time on that's bullshit, you probably already know the answer. Unnecessary meetings, pointless disputes, bureaucracy, posturing, dealing with other people's mistakes, traffic jams, addictive but unrewarding pastimes.
