My focus is on becoming the best engineer that I can be. This precludes me from discounting tools that can get the job done no matter my bias towards them. After all, if it works, it works. I do not wish to take a hammer to a screw nor a screwdriver to a nail either.
So we dance, we fall in love and we pound the keys through the night fueled by coffee on to sunrise. I wondered why I had allowed myself to believe that I would not operate within certain domains. I felt silly. Like I had all of these opportunities right in front of me and I realized my ego was holding me back.
You are an engineer. You may have learned from the bottom at the low system level on the back end and somehow you found yourself at the top on the front end interpreted level. You may feel you have lost complete control. I am here to tell you that you gained time. All of the time that you would have spent optimizing in your preferred realm has now been gifted back to you.
