“mv ‘old goals’ /dev/null

Let’s transition from spelling mistakes to syntax errors, shall we!
I’ve got a folder of potential quotes that I keep, and add to it whenever I had a thought. One day I was working on one of my Linux systems at home, and did something or other will ‘/dev/null.’ I can’t remember the context, but I remember thinking that was a good way tor represent my old goals and old life in this crazy new virtual world.
So I kept it, and this morning tried to put some structure on it.
I’m pretty sure that I will have a gazillion and a half geeks who will point out to me my obvious syntax errors – at the same time that the rest of my followers will be kinda, like, WTF? But it will certainly draw attention, won’t it!
Translation: these are transformative times. Toss your old goals into the garbage bin of history. Search the trends for the future, and find new opportunities and new goals!
It’s not that complex – it’s the details in the syntax, and with that, you can afford to make a few mistakes along the way until you get it right.
That’s it! Once you do that, your future is sudo -i
