As a Software Engineer(Constructor),
I See it's common to feel the pressure to keep up with the latest technologies and learn new skills quickly.
While this pressure can sometimes help some and some truly thrive under the pressure, while others, don't (and guess what- thats OKAY). This varies for me, depending on the situation and context etc, but overall when it comes to learning ---
I personally tend to align more with the slow and steady approach of a 🐢. I've found that taking my time to understand and absorb information allows me to build a solid foundation of knowledge that I can rely on.
However, once I have a solid grasp on a given concept, I become quick and efficient like a 🐇, putting my knowledge into practice. I've found that this balance between the two approaches is what makes me a true alchemist in my field. I'm able to take my time to build a strong foundation of knowledge, and then apply it quickly and efficiently when it's time to execute a project(still learning, haven't constructed much of my own - besides via bootcamp).
In my experience with audio engineering, I learned to embrace the 🐇 mentality and work quickly. However, I've come to realize that combining both approaches is what allows me to excel in my field. Balancing the architectural and engineering aspects of programming allows me to better understand and execute my projects with precision and creativity.
In software engineering(construction), while it's important to keep up with the latest technologies and trends, it's equally important to build a strong foundation of knowledge that you can rely on. By embracing both the 🐢 and 🐇 mentalities, you can become a true alchemist in your field, able to execute projects with precision and creativity.
