"You never finish anything."
Spoken by the VP of Engineering at ChiliSoft. Bastard. He was wrong, but right. Right in that I don't finish some things. Wrong in that I finish things in my own way.
Maybe it was the way I communicated things we were going to try and they were interpreted as "complete this at all costs". Maybe not.
Some of us are starters--that's the highest value application of our time. The best thing to do is get it rolling and then bring in specialist to do it better. That's finishing, too; our job is to get things rolling. And keep getting new things rolling.
But when I look around the apartment, or at my github account, Russ's damn words pop up in my head, along with that sneer, which he earned because he was a finisher.
Screw that, I'm a starter. Here's to the Starters.
