Broken Windows (Part 1)
Today at work, someone I respect much told me that I write very well (in Spanish) and that I am both inspiring and motivating to others. She also said that those were very rare features in a developer.
Seldom I have been aware of this. Actually I believe that the real underlying fact is that I cannot go to work every morning if I am bored of it and I don't feel at ease. I think I could not keep a boring job for a week, just for the money. So, when I am becoming bored, I have to do whatever it takes to make it fun again. People that see me, understand very quickly that I work for the fun, and that I love what I do. I don't know for sure, but when I see someone that seems to love what she or he does, it helps me keep my own fire alive.
During Tuesday afternoon, I talked on the phone with a very special group of people. Now I wish i could have a second chance to tell them:
See guys? Someone I work with thinks I am inspiring and motivating! John? Are you there? At least you have my blog address... :)
Well, the writing my office mate was referring to is an email I wrote to many developers in our organization about a rather basic topic that we needed to reinforce. I have been involved a lot in code quality initiatives lately. I need to translate the text in order to publish it, so please wait until my next post.
