There is no right answer ... and always a better way. Show and discuss your code, without emotional attachment. You are not your code.

Focused, hard work is the real key to success. Keep your eyes on the goal, and just keep taking the next step towards completing it.

We’re building something here ... and all the pieces matter.

The game isn't really about big edges and firework displays; it's about subtle advantages and what happens in the long run.

comment Is there a canonical book on Ruby on Rails?
+1, agile web development is the book to read on this topic, since it is co-authored by DHH (who wrote Rails). Start there to get a solid foundation.
