Building Is Imperfect

Everything is broken.

I can’t believe we built this.

Is that humility knocking? I’ll just remove my name, no need to be associated with this…

If you look too closely for too long, imperfections abound.

In the context of software development, you intimately know the product and therefore all of the rough edges.

Being predisposition to seek out areas to improve, it’s easy to adopt tunnel vision.

Yet, those rough edges are ones you’ll likely care more about than anyone else.

Improvements are constant, not always critical.
