Friday the 13th is supposed to be an unlucky day according to superstition. Superstition is a belief taken on faith and supported by folklore and hearsay. These days folklore includes Hollywood and television (how many Friday the 13th movies are there?).

As a professional developer you should be learning from others, but not blindly. Always seek to understand why things are the way they are. Then you are in a position to decide on the best approach for your situation.
As a business person are you chasing your competitors? Maybe there is a better direction to head and you are missing it because you are not asking the right questions.

Learn, question and take some risks… starting tomorrow!
