Mistrusting myself and assuming the folks around me knew better. Turns out I knew best and just needed to trust my intuitions more.


I didn't always "know best", but I definitely needed to trust my bullshit detector more.

Turns out the things that seemed like a bad idea were indeed a bad idea and there's no hidden good idea behind them.


Yep. If someone implements some sketchy code I ask a million questions until I find the core reason of why they needed that.

Most of the time it was that they didn't know about some simple functionalities or features of the framework we are working or didn't fully read the documentation because they were in a hurry.
