Opposite of Despair...

... is "pair".

Just had a good pairing session. Our result is small and simple, probably not enough to justify our time if you counted lines of code, but involved lots of learning and navigation and refactoring. It was a lesson in doing less.

I was in a bad mood earlier, but a good pairing session with working tests can change my outlook on the whole day. Wish I had one of these at 8:30 this morning!

Collaboration and production give me energy that other tasks can take away.
