  • When you take on a task whether it’s huge and scary or tiny and boring, you’re going to see it through to the best of your ability
  • You focus on building and shipping software that matters to your users and that matters to the company you’re building it for
  • You are confident with a number of programming languages, operating systems, and architectures. You probably have one of each you prefer right now, but you’re neither dogmatic nor myopic in your focus on it
