* Never trust anybody who claims to value "passion". It means they expect you to work for free.
* Never let managers con you into thinking that time spent at work indicates dedication and loyalty.
* When you're tired, your thinking suffers and so does your code.
* Look out for your own health and happiness. You deserve it.
* Do your best to put in a solid 8 hours of work a day, no more and no less. Then go home and LIVE.
