Sometimes, I have to think like a robot, feel like a robot, go on and on like a robot. Because, in my line of work, that actually makes things work better. I mean I can work better, and work gets done better and faster and systematically. So, once in a while, it’s okay to behave like a robot.
In contrast, when I give in to the nuances of being a human being, the drag and fatique just gets to me. It affects me, affects my work, affects my mood, and also my relationships. Like it or not, systematic progressions leads to uplifted mood and uplifted feelings. And that in turn leads to progressive progressions, if that’s even a phrase.
Ultimately, it’s not about work, it’s not about the end product, it’s not about the solution I’m developing. It’s all about the journey.
I think I like the journey even more when I’m in robot-mode, and things are going productively and smoothly.
Just another day of rambling as a programmer, that’s all.
