Sometimes that’s all you really need.
I sent a document I was working on to Jeff Widman last week, asking for some quick feedback. His comments boiled down to:
“You’ve done really well on these two things, but you’re slacking with this other one. You can do better.”
And then he prompted me with a quick example.
After working on something for long enough, it’s really easy to fall into the “wow, this is amazing!” trap. After all, you’ve been working on it for hours, if not days! It’s come so far from the blank page it used to be.
Still, you’re missing something. Guaranteed. You’re almost there, but you need a swift kick in the ass to cross the finish line.
