  • You are not a Software Engineer. You do not build skyscrapers. You do not build bridges.

    You grow gardens.

    You are a Software Gardener.

    Do you try to plan your gardens in such detail that you know where each leaf will be positioned before you plant a single seed? Do people expect estimates (or are they promises in your organisation?) on exactly how many flowers will have bloomed in one years time? Do you have a bonus tied to that? Things that would be perfectly reasonable to plan for a skyscraper seem a little ridiculous when you are talking about a garden.
