I think a lot about practice and how it relates to my work. In tech we spend a lot of time building and trying new things out, but not enough time practicing and repeating. Other disciplines know the value of practice, but the tech industry doesn’t seem to think it’s worth it.
I’ve been trying to weave the idea of practice into my daily work starting with a daily “every day” list of tasks that’s the same every time, always trying something at least two different ways before calling it done, and rewriting important emails to make them more concise and understandable. I’ve been doing this for a few months and so far it’s been great.
