A day without learning is a wasted day.
Don’t know who said that, but I live by this rule, and so I try to learn something valuable* every day:
- You *can* serve confirmation dinner in your living room for 26 people. The only challenge is for the servant whose supposed to present the large tray of steak to each guest, when the guests are sitting shoulder-to-shoulder. 🙂
- When your ASP.NET button click isn’t doing anything, the first place to look ISN’T the SQL query that’s supposed to run. Check that the button is hooked up with the onClick-event containing the code. That will save you a lot of wasted debugging-cycles. n00b. 🙂
- If you are working on a virtual lab and have 20 minutes remaining of your alotted time, but only 10 minutes before your wife has dinner ready, she will “make it so” that the virtual lab crashes. Don’t ask me how.
- If you plan for a nice day out, bicycling with your family, you will only get so far before you have a flat tire.
- Your winner’s luck is thoroughly spent once you land any prize – no matter what it’s worth. So if you win a stack of bananas, that will count as much as winning the lottery. You can’t have both.
So these are some things that I learned. Your comments confirming or denying these claims are welcome.
* Valuable TO ME, that is.. 🙂
