Three essential attributes of work that gives me satisfaction:
- Creative: Or it should be automated. Sometimes automating non-creative work can itself be creative work.
- Useful: Or it will never see the light of day, because it doesn’t solve a problem that is causing someone pain.
- Pure: Or it will accumulate fat and inevitably collapse under its own weight.
Work with these three attributes I will seek out, I will give the time and attention to develop, I will ship the product and maintain it.
