Superstition is fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of being out there all alone with no magical back-up. This hurts you twice — first, it sets you up to accept failure as a “punishment” rather than as just one of many possible outcomes…
… and, second, it robs you of any sense of accomplishment when you win. It ain’t the rabbit’s foot. It’s you, and the preparation and skill-building and focus you put into the task, that made things happen.
Completely worth spending 1.5 hours to watch this.
If you are binding to a Collection such as this.collection.bind(“click”, this.callback) then the context of the ‘this’ in the callback function is the “collection’s context”. Using this.collection.bind(“click”, this.callback, this) will give it the context of the view in which the binding is happening.
I had an Accounting teacher Dr. Cynthia Bolt at The Citadel that used to say that “I’d rather have the money today because you don’t know what tomorrow is going to hold.” Laws change, inflation, cashflow, opportunity costs, etc. Her statement was mostly about investing and accounting, however I think this line of thinking is also very applicable to sales. If you have a customer today, you want to sell to them today and get their money now, because you never know what will change. This person might not be a customer past next week for any number of reason including: death, they fall of the wagon, they loose interest, and life changes.
It’s amazing to me that a company as big as Tumblr is guilt of a huge UX mistake. Next goes backwards in time while Previous forewords. WTF!
