Almost to the day after the six month mark in the new job, I ran headlong into a daily compounding series of foul-ups from which I am extricating myself. “Why?”, I ask myself. On reflection, in every case I had made assumptions, often about myself, more often about the environment and frequently about my (mis)comprehension of how things work. This is embarrassing and frustrating. It is ego and hubris. I must remind myself that here I am the student; that I know nothing in comparison. I must watch, listen and practice. I spent the past two years working within my comfort zone. Things were easy and I took a lot for granted. I’m pushing past that, now, and this is part of the process.
Back to bugfixes.
