The Tech Worker's Prayer
I ran across a reference to the following prayer by Rex Hammock. He posted it to his web site: http://www.rexblog.com/2009/11/07/20124
Lord, grant me the serenity to accept that there are some things I just can’t keep up with, the determination to keep up with the things I must keep up with, and the wisdom to find a good RSS feed from someone who keeps up with what I’d like to, but just don’t have the damn bandwidth to handle right now.
I think this pretty much summarizes the difficulty people have in keeping current in their chosen field, given the speed of new discoveries and other changes. Thanks, Rex!
