So… a few thoughts. The moral of this story is:
What was I saying? Troubleshooting, right. I have to continuously remind myself that I have the skills to figure out any problem I encounter. Last week it was completely uninstalling mySql from my Mac. Not as easy as it sounds, I first had to figure out that the problem I was having had to do with machine migration and how mySql doesn’t like to do this. Am I digressing again? Maybe I’m postgressing? Maybe I should have been postgressing.
Working from home makes you kinda loopy.
Yesterday I broke one of my dev environments. I really broke it good. And I was kind of afraid I’d have to rebuild the whole environment from scratch. I have an itchy trigger finger and if things aren’t working, I’m liable to just chuck it and start over. This time, my friends, I kept my cool. I just sat on it for a while. I thought about all the ways it was broken, and I had a lightbulb moment where I figured out how to fix it. See? I got this. Easy peezy.
I really need to remember that I have the skills to do this. My ego has been messing with me something fierce. I think it’s time to put the “Don’t Panic” sign up behind my desk.
Deep breath, go do a head stand. put the code down and go hug your child. The code isn’t going to get more broken if you ignore it for a day.
