Courage...... and IT.....

Courage, it is tricky word, especially in software industry. Usually In real word, it defines you, defines your life, defines you character. The more courageous you are the more fruitful life you have. However, in the software industry, the more courageous you are, more n more n more work you have and that work is fruitful or not, aah that depends on luck, no guarantee for that. Only guarantee is that tons of work is following courageous people here.
So why people show courage here, for money? I don’t think so.
It is easy to delegate work to other and leave early (well, leaving on time is count as leaving early here), it is easy to say that it is not my issue and don’t care about it. But it will heart you inside (if you know that you can solve it better way or faster). It would be hard for you to sleep well.
When issue arrives, you will say, I will do it and that's the courage. And then…  You will be in office before every one arrives, you will be last one in office to leave and you will be working during weekends too. Your manager will see you first whenever issue occurs; your team-mates will see you for resolutions. People will respect you more for what you are doing and and and… expect you to do more n more n more…. And your family, they will miss you surely.
Then why people show courage!!!! Courage comes from your inner-self. Here courage brings lots of work and responsibilities but it brings honor too. More than honor, self-respect is why people show courage.  A feeling when you solved difficult/complex issue is not less than winning a cricket match or wining a race. It excites you and give you thrill to solve more complex things. Obviously it is slow process compare to other thrilling experiences, it is more like Chess. Mental strength is what asks this industry.
For me being courageous is pride thing and I will honor person who show courage to resolve each n every issue occurs although he is poor social life. And I salute the person who do both very well. It is tough here to having good social life with being courageous.  It is tougher to be courageous….

It's nice to be helpful,responsible & courageous.
In our IT field, sometime it becomes bit more painful by cleaning others S**T & ultimately you get screwed !!

In my opinion, be kind,helful & courageous depends on situation and also dont let others take advantage of you w/o any reason :)...

I guess not only in IT, this kind of courage should be shown in every field of work. My brother says that some women can't succeed because they only maintain the office hour, not the extra work as they have a home to maintain too.

@Shomoita: Yes, You are right. It is tough for women as they have to maintain both things... and I saw that's the reason many managers wants men in their team....
