To the core I do not like having to work harder than I have to, when trying to achieve the simplest of tasks.
When a search and replace will suffice rather than editing 50 lines of code – I will do a search and replace I would rather use a keyboard shortcut than use the mouse when a code library can be created and re-used I won’t write the code twice.
Now you could look at this as being productive – but you could also see this as being lazy in a way, “I have only so much time to do a million things, why work harder than I have to”……so are the most productive people efficient or lazy/smart enough to realize there is a better way?
My favorite session at Lotusphere this yeas was AD103: Embracing the Eclipse Within by Maureen Leland. In this session she introduced all the Eclipse keyboard shortcuts which can be used in Domino development and discussed how the Eclipse platform will take the Domino Designer into the future. This was one of the very few sessions which I knew nothing about before entering and I got a great deal of information from it which I can start using immediately.
