"The three chief virtues of a programmer are: Laziness, Impatience and Hubris." - Larry Wall
Laziness: I'm too lazy to do the same task repeatedly so write scripts to do that task for me. This makes people think I am intelligent.
Impatience: I'm too impatient to wait for my code to run so rewrite the code to improve performance. This makes people think I am a good programmer.
Hubris: When someone asks if I can do something I just say Yes, then go find out how to do it (Google!). This makes people think I can do anything.
Ultimately, it means I can make a career out of being Lazy, Impatient, and Hubristic(?).
