Little Things That Give Me Hope

The above quote from JavaScript Jabber was like someone reaching down to help me up after fifty guys beat the crap out of me. For so long, I’ve felt like, “How am I the only one who sees how ridiculously stupid this process is?”

Another favorite:

“If you ever find yourself as the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room.” – Shaun Johnson, Founder of Startup Institute

I’ve been in the wrong room for far too long. I’ve said for a while now that all I want in a boss is that they know at least as much as I do. Here’s that quote in context:

“You can be okay being ignorant. I know that’s very hard to say, but it’s a very wise saying. If you ever find yourself as the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room. If you’re in the world of web development, you always want to feel like you’re not that smartest person in the room. The more comfortable you are being uncomfortable, the better you will be at tackling harder challenges and continuing to grow as a developer.”
