Logic Of The Day: 20.11.2018.
That is essentially what makes work, a job: responsibility. You will be dependable if your work is done, you will be appreciated of your work is beyond some mediocre output for cash, but you will be responsible only if you take care that your work works.
Sloppy testing and poor planning cannot be excused by neither lack of expertise nor lack of access. Sloppy testing is not caring about your work.
If you are stuck, than that is your most pressing and immediate problem. If you realize you have uncovered a cave of unknown, than that is your most pressing and immediate problem. If you discover your assumptions, or the whole team’s assumptions are off, or simply broken, than that is your most pressing and immediate problem.
When these perspectives on work are internalized work ethic arises and becomes a second nature, one that has very little to do with the other issues regarding work, which then become distinct items: payment, career, progress, professional development, culture etc.
Also, other people’s bad work ethic is not an excuse for your bad work ethic. Oh, and one last thing: work ethic === ownership.
