Anything Can Be Learned

I was being a whiny little shit at a meeting with my mentor yesterday. I dunno, I was kind of having a bad day. He told me to go out and get customers.

“I can’t,” I said. “I suck at talking to people. I don’t know how to sell anything and nobody likes me! I’m a developer, not a salesperson!”

“Did you know how to write code when you were born?”

“No.”

“How did you learn to code?”

“I read books and took classes and just tried to do it…”

“Okay.”
