What can I do…

Me: What can I do if I need to try to hack an existing (not self-made) PHP library?

Sensei: Patience.

Me: What can I do if I do not have the patience?

Sensei: How long have you been coding?

Me: 10 years… but why?

Sensei: Sit on the floor, close your eyes and try to think about the last 10 years.

Me: About the beginning?

Sensei: If you have a good picture in your memory about the first 3 days of the first lf-made program then try to remember the first time when you had to hack that code. Me: Oh yes. I could do that.

Sensei: Was that your code?

Me: Yes.

Sensei: Was it easy to read? Did you remember some lines of it?

Me: Nope.

Sensei: Why did you hack that?

Me: Thanks Sensei… I will think of these.
