  2. Devs - do you have a system for getting things done? Maybe you use no system at all and that really works for you? I'm planning to record episodes for a podcast I'm calling "How Devs Work." Reach out if you'd like to be a guest & talk about the system that works for you!
  3. I don't know who needs to hear this, but... You have an identity that you chose for yourself years ago, and it's not serving you anymore. It's okay to let that identity go, and choose a new one. You don't have to be the stories you've been telling yourself.
