The Art of Ignoring

Say you dive into a new codebase. It’s big. It’s tangled. There are many modules and concepts. Naming looks unfamiliar.

Good naming is an art, and it helps to dive into new codebases.

To be productive, you have to postpone the urge of diving into details. Not knowing everything will help you land results faster. Embrace the discomfort for working with black boxes.

Gradually, you will be exposed more to the system, and you will not ignore the details anymore.
