The first thing that comes to mind is how I worry a lot about reinventing the wheel and not getting anywhere at all. If I question everything, if I go about getting at everything from first principles, I might spend a lot of time doing just that and not accomplish the task at hand.
I also sometimes find it hard to decide how much of the big picture and how many tiny details are worth knowing. I have realized that the more I abstract, the more I take for granted, the lesser questions I have. It's always that compromise between how much time I am willing to spend on something and how satisfied I feel at the end of learning/doing something.
Heh. I rambled.
Anyway, here are my questions for you:
- do you have a lot of questions that are your own? if so, what's your mojo? if not, how do you feel about it?
- how do you know how deep you should be going asking questions?
- do questions sometimes make you uncomfortable? how do you deal with that? (:))
