And it’s implications for automation learners
It goes like this, place a marshmallow on the table, tell the child if they don’t eat this marshmallow for another x minutes, they’ll get a second one, then leave the room.
The jist of it is, kids who can delay gratification will probably be more successful.
And I feel this holds very true for automation learners.
Starting and staying with very basic automation concepts and trying to squeeze every opportunity sitting at that level is not helpful.
Learn to do the grind today and wait for the rewards later on.
Invest in learning how to do automation well instead of doing just the bare minimum and hoping to succeed.
Yes the industry does need automation engineers, but far greater is the need for excellent ones!
