Brain and experience is not everything. I got those.

I'm also rather slow in thinking and have the attention span of a goldfish right now. Also knew a rockstar-developer that split the team into two camps, hindering all progress. Would outcode three of us, but in a team of seven, that's a bad strategy. Adding a 10x-dev is not always a net to the project; sometimes you're better of with willing mules.

That sounds like "working on it in their spare time". I know no professional outside of IT that's crazy enough to do so. No plumber, no cleaner, car-mechanic. Lawyers and doctors even bill in minutes Laugh | :laugh:

I don't do unpaid overtime anymore; done it long enough, because all that is good for the company benefits all employees. Nowadays I'd point to the contract; that's the deal, that's the hours sold against the agreed payment.
