This story would be the perfect fit for a Dilbert strip. Except it wasn’t funny at all back then. It wasn’t that long ago when a narrow-minded “manager” stated that nobody could work from home effectively. He tried and he failed. His inability to work from the comfort of his home was the core of his reasoning for rejecting our requests to work remotely. I stopped counting how many engineers left because of his stubbornness. But things are changing now.
I hated my job, and I’ve never felt accomplished by working for someone else. Almost all the creative people had left the company. The place had become a toxic environment filled with brown-nosers trying to get into management roles at any price. It was a cold, grey day in December 2016 when I was told that I have to switch teams and do some meaningless work from now on. This was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I drove home. It was Friday noon, but I decided to take the rest of the day off. I went out [...]

I speak five languages, and I can program a computer in about a dozen programming languages. However, it took me almost two decades to realize that I can work on my own, without being trapped in any "company culture." It's been 18 years that are gone forever, and I'll never have again. My only hope is that my kids will outsmart me.
Freedom and enjoying life - while we still can - is more important than scaling our business or climbing the corporate ladder. Too many of us get trapped by our own "success" and forget to live a life that's worth living. Meet old friends. Go out, enjoy nature. Ride a bike. Visit your parents. Forget about office politics, money, appointments, and checking your phone every ten seconds. Life begins when you leave all of that shit behind you!
I'm putting the finishing touches on my upcoming book "Programming Foundations for Absolute Beginners: Learn to code from scratch with no prior experience" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QDVDW4S #programming #pythonprogramming #beginners #foundations
