One of my developer wrote to me in chat,

please tell LK that you need your blinkers on and a case of Red Bull.

(Here LK is the name of my senior.)

What does "need blinkers on and a case of Red Bull" mean?

1 Answer 1


Blinkers are eye-shades for horses which allow them to see only straight ahead and prevent them from being distracted by events around them.

Red Bull is a proprietary energy drink.

Your developer is saying that you will need to be focused on the single goal without distractions, and will be working long hours.

    It’s an amusing phrase, I have to give them that.
