There’s a trend. There’s definitely a trend I keep observing these days. Highly motivated Software Engineer, a rockstar, one pushing the boundaries of innovation and melting the limits of implementation, eventually ends up drowning. Drowning in their own frustration. It starts harmless. Slightly decreased motivation, a few harsh words against management here and there, but […]
It’s a fact. Some people can’t afford it, whereas some explicitly don’t want to do it. No matter what your reasoning is, one thing is certain – price of ignoring your mental health is horrendous (and yes, I’m writing a separate article on that). I will try outlining everything that I’ve learned through my 7+ […]

I’m not talking about successful people only, but pretty much anybody. Just by observing others doing things that scare us, we assume that they aren’t dealing with negative […]
