Fusion of confusion

It's a lyrical line from Chicken Little...even Disney can teach me a thing or too. That's the only way to describe some of the development lately. I bear testament to the saying 'do as I say not do as I do'. Lately, I found myself at the end of each day trying too many things to solve a particular problem rather than stepping away and taking time to breathe...ergo...lots of energy and activity and not the corresponding productivity I expected. How the morning light the day after seems to bring unparalleled clarity...highlighting the stupidity that had gone before.

I made my partner promise to do me serious bodily harm if I did not adhere to the following principles.
  • If the road seems murky, step away from the problem. Breath or choke on one's own confusion. Respect the need for noodle time.
  • If I have a problem, chances are someone else has had it before. Google first, code later.
  • Honor the principle of continuous simplication. I'm too old to handle complexity.
  • One step at a time...
Like the chicken says..''s a fusion of confusion with a few confounding things...' but I am encouraged that the sky has not fallen yet and we actually reached our 30 day milestone on time.
