Organization Chart

July 15, 2013 Leave a comment

I came across a version this on Quora today. Googled for the source and ran into this post.

When the top level guys look down they see only shit; when the bottom level guys look up they see only a**holes. (Apologies for the unparliamentary language, I did not  want to dilute the emotions Smile).

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle.  But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” – Marilyn Monroe

Developers are often asked to do something which has never been done before, and tell someone else how long it will take before they even know what actually needs to be done.

A slightly modified quote from a quora answer to the question Why are software development task estimations regularly off by a factor of 2-3?.

The question’s answer wiki is an excellent source of insight and so are a few answers.

Quotable quote–Correcting the world

June 6, 2012 Leave a comment

"Correcting oneself is correcting the whole world.
The sun is simply bright.  It doesn’t correct anyone.
Because it shines, the whole world is full of light.
Transforming yourself is a means of giving 
light to the whole world."
Ramana Maharishi
