The King of Graceful Degradation
Back when I was just a wee recent grad, I learned the term “graceful degradation” from my first software development team.
Basically, it means that when you load up a system, it should slowly degrade, giving plenty of warning, rather than suddenly snapping and crashing.
That’s a good metaphor for my life right now. Between all the various drains on my time, I feel like I’m experiencing a graceful degradation (as you can see from the frequency of posts in the past two weeks!).
What do you think is the proper response? To improve my time management? Or to cut back?
