I’m working late on a project because we’re in the middle of doing a deployment at work. Thankfully I’m not involved other than listening to the call.

But as I’m working on this I realize how much I like the code that I’m writing. The framework I put together just is pleasant to work in.

I look at the code and I realize how proud I am of the work I’ve done.

I know that everyone who’s a good worker strives to be proud of what they do. When you look at something and just see beauty. I know too many people who aren’t proud of the work they do.

And work isn’t just stuff you’re paid for. It’s just about all human endeavor.

It’s important to work to be proud of what you do. Slapdash stuff can be OK at times, but generally you won’t be proud of it either.
