The older I get, the more I am accepting of the way my brain seems to prefer to work. I try to look at the shiny tools and appreciate them as nice design artifacts, not magic fixes.
The trick is in creating the interface between myself and other people I work with (who quite reasonably need certain structures and documents). Getting help where I need it, adopting other working styles in some projects, listening carefully.
But I have given up on trying to be a different person.
