Grab yourself an alibi - PHPDay 2013

A software development team may face many problems, many problems each week, each day, hour by hour. Developers blame on managers. Managers blame on coders. Both blame on UX designers. UX designers blame on customers. Customers blame on account managers. Account managers on agile coaches. Agile coaches on DBAs. DBAs on human resources and all of them blame on final users.

OK, enough of that: best players are those who don’t wait for things to be perfect in order to succeed. Those who can cope with the absence of perfection are those who can truly make things better.

  8. 8. “The Greeks were so committed to ideas as supernatural forces that they createdan entire group of goddesses (not one but nine) to represent creative power; theopening lines of both The Iliad and The Odyssey begin with calls to them.These ninegoddesses, or muses, were the recipients of prayers from writers, engineers, andmusicians. Even the great minds of the time, like Socrates and Plato, built shrinesand visited temples dedicated to their particular muse (or muses, for those whohedged their bets). Right now, under our very secular noses, we honor these beliefsin our language, as the etymology of words like museum ("place of the muses") andmusic ("art of the muses") come from the Greek heritage of ideas as superhumanforces.” -- S.
