Repetitive Coding is coding the same problems in a variety of different ways to deliver the same or less value.
It’s not refactoring.
It’s not improving the system.
It’s doing the same thing, in a different way because it might look fancier or prettier but yield no value to anyone.
It’s a waste of time.
It’s busy work.
And if you’re doing it, it’s time to ask why you’re doing it and what you need to do get out of it.
You’re trapped and it’s time to make a change.
Hint: This could involve a career change if it’s the same type of work you’re getting and cannot lead any new initiatives on your own.
