Hmm. Just got evicted – so trying to work out where I went wrong…..
There are lots of small things – “If I’d not put that bug there I’ve have saved a week of my time” – but you have to be prepared to risk making a mistake and then correcting it. You can’t get everything right all the time – and if you worry too much about it it gets in the way of doing anything.
Perhaps I might have gone to Cambridge University rather than Southampton – but I think that would have just lead to a different brilliantly fun life.
