The Right Mindset

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.
