Being the best
We want to be the best – strive to be the best. Most of us do, anyway. And most of those that don’t eventually get weeded out – thankfully – into other professions. The concept of being the best takes me back to my first professional career-type job and my manager told me how when he wrote his first program it compiled right the first time…no errors. I believed him at the time…looking back now I’m not so sure. He’s retired now but still a Facebook friend so I’ll let him comment if he dares. But what I’m getting at is this….right out of college that, to me, was a characteristic of possibly being the best developer ever. No errors coding the first time through. Wow.
