A realisation about working for myself

One of the best things about leading my own project has been not having to pretend I’m some sort of shit hot programmer. It’s nice to be able to to say “argh, that’s too hard, fuck it” or “I have no idea how this works” without worrying about my performance review.

Of course, I also like to claim that I’m providing a visible example that it’s okay not to be perfect or know everything, to help make it less scary for our newer contributors. But mostly it just feels good to realise that the pressure’s off, I don’t have to pretend to be what I’m not, and I can learn and get shit done at my own pace.
