PHP Programmers: Stop Whining and Shut-up!
We jump off a cliff and wonder why we get hurt when we hit the ground. We stab ourselves and can’t figure out why we are bleeding. We want a lot of money, but we are not willing to work for it.
Welcome to a world where your destiny is in your hands. Action is the answer to your problems.
If you are sick and tired of a few projects sucking your time and pissing off your boss…then fix the code that is causing you problems. What? Your boss won’t give you the time to do this since it is not billable time? Than find time outside of normal work hours to fix it. I understand this isn’t fun, but if you want to move on with your life, this is necessary. If you are waiting for the problem to go away (or praying about it), than that is a good sign that you are at a bad spot. I’ve had projects consistently and constantly suck the life out of my working day because I kept on implementing “hacks” that didn’t fully fix the problem (or they would end up breaking something else). I should have just re-coded huge chunks of the site(s) and saved a ton of headaches and time.
If you are sick of your job for whatever reason, and there isn’t anything enjoyable about what you do, find a new job. Do this BEFORE you quit. But if you are going to stay at your current job, STOP WHINING about it. Having a bad attitude not only affects your own performance, but brings others down as well. Either suck it up or act with your feet.
Some people think that by whining about their job or their situation, that it somehow brings relief. This is a lie. The only thing whining does is give you self-pity….which is a pit meant for the weak. If you don’t mind getting burned alive, go ahead, jump into the pit. But if you want to get better over time and conquer your obstacles…GET BUSY!
The only person who has the power to fix your problems is you.
How do you react when someone whines?
