  1. “Lord, grant me the strength to accept the things I

    cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” -- Reinhold Niebuhr
  2. Say no Do no Say yes Do yes Say yes

    Do no Negotiate & help Usefulness
  3. Our code is bad and the only option is to

    rewrite everything, but other team members won't accept coming out of their comfort zone
  4. Non-technical coworkers often interrupt me to tell me about an

    e-mail, issue ticket or other non-urgent matter
