Today we focus on the job again as there are some excellent posts to read. First, on DaedTech, they plead for us to stop “geeking out”. I wholeheartedly agree with the ideas. Basically, you can “geek out” but don’t make that the goal. You still need to help people and build the appropriate things. Ben Garvey has a great post on “real work” vs “fake work”. Sometimes fake work seems like real work, so that line is really blurry. On DZone Agile we get a post about your dream job no longer being your dream job. Passion is important, but you can’t sacrifice balance. Everyone needs a break sometimes.
