Bytes of Wisdom: Day 40

Alt Text

Challenging yourself to be better is incredibly important in software and incredibly important for your own growth. You will make mistakes, you will feel shame and embarrassment but that's always a good thing - it means you're learning. Repeated mistakes are bad, but new ones are usually full of opportunity.

Heads up: As with any terse bit of advice, there will be exceptions of course, and subtleties and nuance that can't possibly be captured in a Byte of Wisdom. This has been what I've experienced, I'd love to hear yours in the comments too!

You can catch up with all the other bytes at
