Some Soul Searching

« »

This entry isn’t about PHP.

It’s about where those of us who develop for a living, PHP or otherwise, see ourselves in the future.

From time to time I do some soul searching and think about where I’ve been and where I’m going. With a tough few months in the books, I wanted to take some time and figure out my next moves, and where I’m heading.

Soul searching isn’t easy, because it requires us to examine ourselves, and in particular, our mistakes, to decide whether or not what we’re doing is appropriate and good. Soul searching means reexamining every hard decision that we made and thinking about whether or not we decided rightly. And it means taking a hard look at where we said we were going, and whether or not we actually got there.

I’ll be doing some soul searching this weekend as I think about the direction I want to go. And then I’m going to employ my resources to get there.

Good luck! We all need a period of reflection and thought

Introspection is the key to gathering requirements about yourself, for yourself. I wish you the most quite, stress free weekend!
