Dudes and dudettes,

Let me remove my technical brain for a second........

So you satrt a new job. Nice Tie, good intentions. Everyone seems nice and
at you as you exchange casual conversation.

You hope for the best, motivated to delve into something new. You try to
forget the issues
 from you last place of employ and put them down to personality conflicts,
jealousy and ulteeriour motifs.

The first few weeks are great, green grass, pleasant views you tolerate the
people you feel aren't on your level and spend more effort focussiong on the
people who pay you the time or have similar gaols or demanours.

Some months down the track you give validity to the fact that perhaps what
you wanted an what this place provides are not on the same page. You avoid
certain people. You take a few sickies.

You begin to think of new directions.

Pessimism or reality. Nothing ventured nothing gained. Better to try than to
fail than to never try at all???

We aspire for the ideals of success, to create new things and challenge
ourselves. Be unique.. We also want to blend in, keep our heads down, be
somewhat normal.

To create good software we must heed the lessons of life and collaborate,
alas, we all know diversifying complex task adds to the complexity.
Leadership, clear goals, patience and momentum are what will make this
project succeeed.

Not me, nor you.

The code is the manifestation of the goal, the developers and the user. Two
of these things are contant. One is not.
