I would get a big pat on the back and I felt like a hero. But I set an expectation that was impossible to live up to. Working like that is unsustainable. Eventually, I started to burn out, get sick, and miss deadlines.
Ceta Walters on Fall Fashion & Finding Time for Herself
I started getting a reputation as unreliable and inconsistent. It was bad news. What I eventually came to understand, and what you should commit to learning too, is that the real heroes are the ones who are consistently reliable. The only way to be that kind of hero is to manage expectations. You need to take control of the timelines so that you are always and without fail delivering high quality work exactly on time. This is incredibly difficult at first. Over time, other developers will be late, deliver sloppy work, or burn out and become unreliable.
Then you will become the real hero of your team. In fact, learning this made me one of the most in demand consultants in my market. Spending time is an investment.

You should be getting back at least as much — and hopefully more — value than you put in. The most important thing is that your application feels fast to the user. This was a very hard one for me to learn and accept. When you are constantly draining your resources, you are not being as productive as you can be. If you get depleted, we see performance decline.
Always working sets off strain reactions, such as stress, fatigue, and negative mood.
These drain your focus and your physical and emotional resources. Otherwise it becomes harder to stay on-task, be attentive and solve problems. So, schedule that down time. Actually plan and put on your calendar real scheduled breaks. This will allow you to take down time without feeling guilty about it. You can get it here.
Deeply learning the fundamentals will 10x your learning efficiency. Always focus on improving fundamentals above all else. What do you think about it? Did you learn any lessons? Will you make new plans tomorrow?
There are no rules here about what to write. Write about how your curtain hangs on your wall. Write about a spider you saw in the bathroom. The idea here is to flex your muscles and warm up your way with words.
FINDING TIME – TIME MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
Pick a prompt and spend 10 minutes exploring it. A prompt can be a word, a phrase, or a picture. What do you think of when you consider it? What emotions does it stir? What does it move you to do or say?
1. Identify Your Priorities
Mind mapping. Start with the prompt and add branches. Each branch is a word or phrase that springs to mind when you look at the prompt.
You might go in a dozen directions. Free writing. The point is to keep putting words on paper until the timer stops. Put it all down so you can see. Spend 5 or 10 minutes analyzing what you have. Then boil it down to one main point you can present with three pieces of evidence. Spend 30 minutes writing your draft. Use the short outline you just wrote to guide you. What kind of evidence can you use for the 3 supports? Thought provoking questions. Whatever you use, make it human. Connect to what your readers care about. What if you need to do some research? Use your 3 points to dig deeper.
For example, why did I suggest you write instead of watch TV? Neilsen reports the average American spends 3 hours and 58 minutes every day watching TV. Every day! If you spent half of that writing, you could easily write a book a year or more. Stories help us see ourselves doing things. Use them and your writing will be more persuasive. There are stories happening in front of you all the time.
