This thread should be archived and perhaps even Data Mined for the collection of "Sanity Savers" in it.
If challenged to list a single point? I'd have to make it a tie for two. The two being reference to those "endorphin moments" and the grimoire concept. The endorphin rush of getting the Zen inherent in .nix realms is addictive. The grimoire is that which increases those moments!
I spent an inordinate time trying to retrocreate the missing site documentation/manuals for a recent contract. A contract that would have been effortless joy to have worked. Had only my predecessor kept a "site grimoire" chained to the server rack!
The comments about meaningful names and comment are not of mere pain/joy importance for all the code we write or systems we set up, Those concepts are beyond mere ease of situation to the "next person" working something.
They're arguably a totally Pass or EPIC FAIL level importance. And the "Why?" of it becomes of even more grim import,
Do every task as if you will be that "next person" working the aftermath. As often, you will BE that next person.

you can sample this on Windows by installing Cygwin. commands such as
grep, find, sed, and awk are useful things to have a familiarity with.
You don't need to master any of them, there's plenty of guides and
docs to fill in the details once you have the basics.
