Man … sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present.

I don’t envy those just entering the field of web development.

The Fallacy of Keeping Up by Tim Kadlec

It’s very exciting. But it can also be stressful. […]

I certainly have improved as a developer since I first started. Yet everything I’ve learned has exposed a dozen more topics I know nothing about. The list of things I don’t know about the web grow as fast as my well-intentioned “read-it-later” list, so how do I prioritize and figure out what to explore next? […] Tim Kadlec

Gerade beim Aufräumen meiner „Read it Later“ Artikel gefunden, also zwar schon ein wenig älter, aber dennoch lesenswer. Es ist schwer immer und überall auf dem neusten Stand zu bleiben, gerade im sehr schnelllebigen „Webumfeld“.

Do you really need a meeting? Meetings usually arise when a concept isn't clear enough. Instead of resorting to a meeting, try to simplify the concept so you can discuss it quickly via email […] The goal is to avoid meetings.

No meetings planned for today so far! So i’m looking forward to a productive day.

Passwords are like toilet paper. Don't reuse, don't share ones you've used, & no one should be asking to see what you've used. James Turner (via Twitter)
