I hate you repeat

I hate you repeat

Do you hate I repeat?

Have you accomplished by yourself what we agreed last time or what assigned to you?
Or you’ve done it only when I called, because you forgot?
Or you’ve done it, but forgotten to update the trac or to send an email about it?

Every time someone stresses you out with unwanted behaviour, ask yourself one simple question.

Have I done something that put this fellow acting this way?

Maybe or maybe not (but this is another story): trust is difficult to earn and easy to lose.

I blog sono qui per rimanere

 A blog may not look sexy and, like all things worthwhile, takes a little time. But if you’re looking at vehicle to serve as a hub of your online networking, there’s nothing better than a blog.

Scripting is the new literacy

 I find coding is an incredible means of self-expression. Scripting is the new literacy. A hundred years ago, the dividing line was the ability to read and write. Today, it’s between people who can code simple things, and those who can’t. It’s so liberating to have an idea and be able to bend the computer to your will.

The fermata

 [The fermata] It is a mark from the composer to the conductor: Hold the pause as long as you like.

When we finally have the attention of an audience, our instinct is to rush. Attention is precious, please don’t stare, okay, I’m hurrying, there, I’m done.

It doesn’t have to work that way.

If you’ve got something to say, say it. Slowly. With effect. The audience isn’t going anywhere. At least not the people you care about.

No, don’t waste their time. Yes, handle your message with the respect it deserves.

If you have to rush to say it, it might not be worth saying.
