Notes on enginering leadership and software development.

Pain Is a Part of The Process

It's like those Russian-Jewish ballet teachers. If your feet aren't bleeding, you're not doing it right.

  • If you don't feel you need to ask your mentor for advice every now and then, you're not challenging yourself enough.
  • If your team doesn't make decisions that turn out to be suboptimal and learn from them, you're not delegating enough.
  • If your team never disagrees with you, you're not challenging the team enough.
  • If you never have a "made progress towards expectation" performance review, your manager is not challenging you enough.

You πŸ‘ won't πŸ‘ grow πŸ‘ without πŸ‘ stetch πŸ‘ goals.
