Spiritual Software Development?

I wonder about this. It’s just something I’ve been thinking about. Can we bring our spirituality to our work? I think we can.

As a consultant, I feel ethically bound to tell my customers when they are heading in the wrong direction, and help guide them in the right direction (unfortunately, I don’t get much chance to advise them a priori). I am also ethically bound to fair billing practices.

But I think this is more than that. It has to do with what of ourselves we give to our work, rather than how we do our work. It’s a subtle but important difference. Just something I’ve been thinking about. Maybe I’ll write a book about it someday. And get on Oprah’s Book Club list.

Yeah, right.
