Notes to Self
- Holding back is selfish, because it deprives the group of your insight at the same time that it normalizes non-participation.
- Change is hard. Change is the work.
- Ask questions
- Motivation is not required when I already have the ability
- Ambition is not giving up on myself
- Leadership is not giving up on my team
- Do not let the perfect be the enemy of the good
- Make your own Beautiful Bubble
- Plan the work. Schedule the work.
- You must ship: “Starting isn’t enough. It’s that follow through to the end that matters.”
- You must ship: “Emotional labor is doing the work you don’t feel like doing, because that’s the work.”
You have to create more than you consume. Your goal should be to create value for everyone you interact with.
