How many times have you heard a developer say this?
This problem is really complex, I’m going into a cave for the next few days to work on it.
So they go away for a few days and when they come out – BOOM – problem solved, new features built, product ideas are pouring out the ceiling.
Two days in a Cave – no distractions, minimal interruptions, no communications – yielded – progress, delivery, initiative.
We can’t always work out of our cave (wherever that is) but it’s refreshing to know that we all have that place where we yield the most incredible work possible.
If you haven’t found yours, find it, don’t flaunt it (no social media) and kick it into Overdrive.
PS – It’s not solely for code problems either.
