"Theory is when you know something, but it doesn’t work. Practice is when something works, but you don’t know why. Programmers combine theory and practice: Nothing works and they don’t know why." - Unknown

I think commit message detail shouldn’t generally scale with code written. It should scale with *effort*. If doing X or fixing X took a long time to figure out, that’s worth writing up. Because it’ll likely take someone nearly as long later if you don’t. Be nice to future devs.

Rule #1 of development: Accept the fact that you will spend copious amounts of time debugging something only to realize you forgot to import the component before using it, or were refreshing the live site and not localhost.

They say you can burn up to 20 calories a minute doing kettlebell swings. However, you can burn 20 calories a second once you realise you didn't set the right env var before running your DROP DB script.

A surprisingly large part of having expertise in a topic is not so much knowing everything about it but learning the language and sources well enough to be extremely efficient in google searches.

My theory is that flatscreen TVs are the main reason for increases in Black Friday violence. Back in the old days, you used to have to get 3 or 4 people to help you move a big TV. It really did a great job of forcing cooperation.

Don't "work harder." Instead: Cut away distractions. Stop doing fake work. Ask for help. Plan. Solicit criticism. Automate what can be automated. Engage your mentors. Exercise. Get more sleep. Whatever you do, don't "work harder." It's pretty much never the answer.

Debugging code is like a murder mystery, but you are both the murdered and the murderer. And a moron.
