I turned 47 a little while ago, and I’ve had some reasons to reflect on the shortness of life, and I realized how very important it is for me to work on the software that I think about every day. I kept putting it off, but every day that I put it off hurt more than the previous day. I realized that I couldn’t continue — I have to do the work that I need to do.
Brent is one of my Objective C development role models. The guy loves writing software, and has been doing it for a long time which is inspiring. And I can certainly relate to only wanting to work on projects that excite you. It's basically been the driving force for my entire career.
