In the last months, I’ve been thinking a lot about software engineering and life. Technology meets philosophy, so to speak.
It all has started with a simple observation: When I’m in programming flow, things are easy. Everything just clicks.
But as nice as that feeling may be, my workday eventually ends, and my momentum vanishes away quickly.
Thinking becomes hard again, and life gets its grip back on me. Daily chores, nutrition, finances, private life – the whole package.
So I asked myself a question only a software engineer would ask himself: Can I apply software engineering (SE) to improve my general life? Why not leveraging my knowledge about software engineering in all areas of life?
