When I was training new software developers, I always assumed that they could do everything, until they couldn’t.
I was rarely disappointed, and never by a woman.
That was my attitude towards myself. I never had a software project fail. I decided to retire at age 70 ¼ on my own terms.
For me, I enjoyed my work, as described in my article “Managers: How do You Manage a Cat?” I never worried about anybody else’s attitudes.
A million dollars would not make much difference in my life. I don’t care. I am a cat.
