“Bill Gates said, ‘I would always hire a lazy person to do a hard job. Because he will find an easy way to do it.’”

“Eisenhower says that he had two kinds of problems, the urgent and the important. The important are never urgent and the urgent are seldom important.”

“With copilots, you can actually give people an option… They don’t have to learn it anymore, they can just tell us what they need.”

“It’s about figuring out your priorities. For example, for me, in the morning, that’s my best time.”

“We use AI for code reviews… It becomes easier because it’s going to catch many types of code problems.”
