I hate meetings. Especially long ones.

Mostly they are a waste of time. They kill your productivity. They are just for talking not for taking actions. You just talk the talk, and you pretend like you are taking notes (who knows when will you check them) then you go back to your desk to continue working on your tasks, of course, if you have the needed energy to continue.

Difficult to make even small changes

Breaking functionality of software by making changes

Introducing a new bug by fixing another one

Implementing code that is unnecessary

Almost impossible to add a new feature because of complicated code

The never-shipping product

Throwing code away and rewriting it from scratch

12 months.

That’s the time we wasted for rewriting our software from scratch.

12 long months in the software market.

Without innovation…

Without moving forward…

Really, I cannot stop asking this question to myself.

What could we achieve in this fast-moving world in 12 months?

Just a few decades ago, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates started revolutionizing the technology world by making the impossible — possible. 

They gave us all the chance to enjoy technology as we do it now. Every day.

Their discovery changed all our lives into better.

And it’s not only them. There were many great minds in human history, so when we look back we can remember them easily:

Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Sergey Brin, Larry Page, Mark Zuckerberg and so many others…

Their discoveries changed the world and our lives.

Hey there!

You clicked on this article (which is a big success for me because this is my first story) — but the point here is not about my writing endeavors, but rather about programmers. And, more specifically, how an entrepreneur’s mindset can change their approach to solving problems and focusing on the big picture.

Since you are reading this article, most probably you are a programmer just like I am. We have probably gone through some similar programming situations and made the same mistakes in our programming life that would make us completely understand each other even though we have never even met.

Don’t focus on the solution, focus on the problem.

Are you looking for a startup idea but you don’t know how to get a great one?

Here is my answer to you:

Stop my friend!

You are going in the wrong direction. Don’t make the same mistake as everyone usually does. Don’t wait for a startup idea to find you.

Trust me on this one. You don’t need it.

The better version of yourself is waiting for you. Ready to go for it?

All of us has some bad habits. They don’t bring joy into our lives, they don’t provide us with anything good but rather they prevent us to reach better versions of ourselves. We don’t gain anything by doing them except wasting our energy. Now, the important question that arises here is:

Are we aware of them? Or better, are we aware of what we are doing to ourselves?
With this article, my aim is to increase our awareness about the bad habits that we tend to ignore and give some tips on how to fight them. ]]>
