This is more on work and life balance.

1. Don't do hard work, but do 'Smart work', else you will end up burn yourself 100%.

2. Don't think your manager is your guardian angel, even though it seems like sometimes. He has his own goals to achieve.

3. Spend considerable time daily in and out of office/work, for your own development/improvement.

4. Learn new languages and technologies.

5. Stop making things perfect, 'good' is enough.

and it goes on ............

    An addendum to point 5: "Done is better than perfect."
    Something I should try to take heed of more often.

    The point to note here is, when we say 'done', it means be 'done in proper way'.
    After that, don't try to make it perfect, because maintenance of a system is a never ending process, until it is deprecated.
    Along the way you don't know how many times your 'perfect' code will be modified.
    (Worst case removed from the system altogether)

    Developers could find a middle ground and be satisfied with it.
    (I was, myself a guy who always tweaks the code until last minute, and found what?)
