I’ve been programming all weekend and, without any doubt in my mind, when I come back into the office there will be people who will not understand how I have completed another project many weeks before the deadline. There are certain sacrifices I make, despite my casual work attitude, that give me a workplace advantage. It takes a lot of work to gain something as seemingly trivial as a new perspective on an issue or to push back thoughts that something is too difficult to achieve in a given time-frame or, even more defeatist, impossible. It’s very comforting to know I work with other like-minded developers that do not simply turn off their mind when their 8 hours is up.
