I hate it when someone says “we don’t have to re-invent the wheel.”
They are really saying, “let’s not do any thinking different or make any improvements. Status quo.” Lazy.
Status quo, the usual way, the way it’s always been done is not good enough.
Look. If no one ever took the time to re-invent the wheel, we’d be driving on wooden (I doubt the first wheel was stone) tires. Stupid.
