Action over Words
This recent article by DHH resonates with me pretty significantly, actions > arguments.
As my mom put it… “actions speak louder than words.”
When it comes to engineering, doing beats talking. Many organizations (think big corporations) are paralyzed by non-action, or too many words spoken and not enough fingers on keyboards.
The ‘bloatifcation’ of engineering teams starts by inaction, a lot of talk, not a lot of doing. What happens after, is anyone’s guess.
Talk is cheap. If you say you’re going to do something, make sure you follow through with action.
