Music to my ears

It was wonderful to hear one of my colleagues the other day correct another programmer she was pairing with by saying "First run the tests and see that all the assertions are succeeding before you make any changes."

It was music to my ears because only two days prior, I was pairing with that colleague, and demonstrating how important it was to avoid refactoring until all tests are green.

Not only does knowing that you are making a difference feels great, but it also motivates you to contribute even more to the team you work with.
