  1. Mindset is so important! What people don't realize is people who are average will have average thoughts and the people who are successful are the ones who have good thoughts (zero invisible barriers to stop them).

    The truth is no one is truly ready for anything in life that is why we have the ability to learn. This is one of the main reasons why you will get a job even when it says 5 years experience preferred.

    If you think you can't do it you can't . If you think you will find a way to do it you will.

    Success = ( i_can_do_it && i_will_do_it)

    Failure = (i_can't_until && i_don't_think_i_can)

  2. While I admit that the technology can be challenging, that has never been the toughest part , at least for me. Dealing with the egos and insecurities in a team is just tough, whether its Unix admin or development, but dealing with customers is easily the toughest part of the role. The 'I'll know it when I see it !' attitude usually goes hand-in-hand with a key user who is 'too busy' to answer your questions properly : the same key user who will slam your team when they end result isnt what their company / business needed. You can give all the pep talks / sports analogies you want but it will never change the fact that business still refuses to own their own projects, regardless of the initial enthusiasm they might seem to have for it. Dont even get me started re resistance to change from office drones who've been in the same seat for 20+ years and dont want to learn anything new. The serial bitches on Rails/PHP/Django forums have nothing on these clowns.

  3. 'is all about the speed of knowledge that you adquire and the speed in what you put it to use' Wow…thanks so much for that, that hit my heart so hard, I dont know if i would be able to forget that, that game could be named life. Greetings from Venezuela!
