It could be that you are just very busy and it happens that some things slip through the cracks. If I really need to remember something I have to make a note of it otherwise I forget with all the other busyness.
Simply stop running around like a headless chicken.
Just stop chasing yourself and take a second to think before you do something and everything will be fine. When you are ready for the next level, we will raise the bar by having a drill sarge yell into your ear while you must stay calm and get your act together.
Or as Yoda would have put it:
A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away... to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing. Hmph! Adventure. Heh! Excitement. Heh! A Jedi craves not these things. You are reckless!
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
You need a keyless lock, they come in all sorts of varieties depending on the level of security you need/want. I actually use one on my house, its been awesome as I only carry the key for whatever vehicle I am driving. So much less cluster and useless things to remember to carry...
Common sense is admitting there is cause and effect and that you can exert some control over what you understand.
It's true and false.
Someone's simple code might look complicated to other.
I can't remember the specific but to give you an analogy / anecdotal evidence once I refactored some code to be way shorter and more linear.
Unfortunately I was using this newfangled keyword await and this new class no-one uses in the company: Task.
Sometimes people refuses to understand something simply because it doesn't look enough like copy paste from some other part of the application. That is unfortunate when your challenge is to simplify code that is, from everybody's agreement, too much spaghetti like....
Just an other pointless piece of medium blog spam, just on an other site than usual.
Completely empty of content, just participating in the Global Software Engineering Circle Jerk by regurgitating some old quotes.
These ideas are repeated at least once an hour by someone else who thinks he's so clever for agreeing with them. Someone, somewhere, is blogging about it right now, possibly hoping to score some "agrees with popular idea"-points in the echo chamber that software engineering has become. "Code is meant for people", "code is communication", "write as if the next maintainer kills people who write sh*tty code", "write dumb code", "don't be clever", "in fact, don't write code, create solutions". These things have gone way past the "worth talking about" stage, past the meme stage even, and are now well into the circle-jerk and ironic-meme stage.
