Three professionals were riding in a car: a hardware technician, a systems analyst, and a programmer. The systems analyst is driving and when they come to a steep hill he finds that the brakes have failed and the car is accelerating out of control. So, the driver starts pumping the emergency brake, downshifting the gears, and rubbing the wheels’ rims against the curb. He finally manages to bring the car to a stop.
The three professionals climb out and assess the situation.
Hardware technician: “Let’s try and fix it. I’ll crawl under the car and take a look. ”
Systems analyst: “No. I think we should get someone qualified to fix it, a specialist in brakes.”
Programmer: “Why don’t we just get back in and see if it happens again?”
Moral of the story: There’s an urgent need to come out of your comfort zone to taste success
