I just read a thought-provoking post on LinkedIn:
Too many ideas, not enough good developers.
He was speaking Silicon Valley-ese, of course, and referring to coders and software geeks.
But it set me thinking:
How do I think of myself?
A bit like the two Medieval-era stonemasons, who were asked, “What do you do?
One replied, “I cut stones.”
The second jerked his head in the direction of the as-yet-unfinished tower behind him, and replied, “I build cathedrals.”
I should think:
I’m an aircraft developer. I build cool birds.
