Why every minute is not important and making thing `Done` is nonsense

Imagine you are a software developer of any sort, people usually from managerial point ask you if you are a good finisher? if you can overtake every second to finish a task no. shit-000456 in a reasonable time, so they can make it live quicker, show it to customer/end-user quicker, collect money faster. that done word and minutes are just there because of money, aren’t they? But let’s find out if they really do matter. (they not)

Imagine you are in a race, you, alone in a race track so call Nurburgring. The goal is to go more rounds in 1 year, 2 years or 20 years (I believe these numbers are the real number for a real hot software), you can collect money from the moment you take a step forward, you postpone you step forward, you gain less and lesser. So, what would you do? Start running? Hire more runner? Build a team of runners? multi-runners?

What if you take your time, forgetting about those greedy teams and build a team of engineers who can make you a car? a fast one, even a slow one, even a bike, bicycle or skate. then what would happen in 10 years? those runners are maniacs who think can beat a supercar by running early.

I strongly believe the same example is true in the software development world, you see some ideas pop up really quick and collect some money and then disappear, but some come later and stay longer and longer. when Instagram got popular, there were tons of other social media. when Google started to be a search engine, there were already search engines. When WhatsApp, Telegram or Discord started to get fame, there were similar platforms.

My point is that something beyond making things done and working quickly matters, I think that’s quality. If you do what you can do really good and with highest standards, you can put yourself in the market and grow, and enjoy your end result, no matter how crowded it is.

Fear

Am I afraid of war? am I afraid of people asking me why I didn’t the boring tasks? am I going to be in fear whenever I am in new places, meeting new people? Should I be in deep fear because I want to do what I like to do? should I be in constant fear of “did I satisfied the assholes I really do respect”? Am I responsible for fulfilling other random people satisfaction? How long should it take for me to realize that I should not give a fuck? When is the checkpoint that I stop fearing and start living? should I wait for the checkpoint or should I mark this moment as the checkpoint? Am I waiting for someone to save me and say me this is checkpoint? Is anyone care about my future? Is anyone other than me is responsible for my future? how many struggles, daydreams, and nightmare should I pass? what should I do? Why I can’t tell people NO in their face? what am I afraid of?

Quotes

I have spent my whole life scared, frightened of things that could happen, might happen, might not happen, 50 years, I spent like that, finding myself awake at 3 in the morning, but you know what, ever since my diagnosis, I sleep just fine…I came to realize is that fear that’s the worst of it, that’s the real enemy, so, get up, get out into the real world, and you kick that baster as hard as you can right in the teeth.
