Keep It All In Your Head

There is something very powerful about keeping it all in your head. Like Ramanujan with numbers. Or Steve Wozniak with circuits. This is from Steve Wozniak:

“If you can just quickly whip something out and it’s done, maybe it’s time, once in a while, to think and think and think, “can I make it better than it is, a little superior?” What it does is not necessarily make the product better in the end, but it brings you closer to the product and your own head understands it better. Your neurons have gone through the code you wrote, or the circuits you designed, have gone through it more times, and it’s just a little more solidly in your head and once in a while you’ll wake up and say, “Oh my God, I just realized a bug that’s in there, something I hadn’t thought of.”

Or, if you have to modify something, or add something new, you can do it very quickly when it’s all in your head. You don’t have to pull out the listing and find out where and maybe make a mistake. You don’t make as many mistakes. Just believe that what you have is better than whatever has existed before. We should only move forward in technology and not backwards.”

Keep It All In Your Head. Great advice.
