So, I am currently reading
Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap, by Jim Collins. Upwork’s SVP of Engineering suggested this book to engineering staff and it’s been a very interesting read during my trip. In just a short time, I’ve grown to really admire him as a very valuable and intelligent person. Flying back home currently and I notice there are some pretty great communications to motivate through struggle.
Without struggle we can’t learn. With struggle comes growth. Life is about learning and living your truth.
We are working too hard. Do not panic.
Our darkest moments provide a fantastic time for us to learn
because whatever we do from here can't make matters worse but
it might make it better.
Work smarter, not harder. This is how successful and happy people live. I learned this very valuable lesson on this trip to Europe.
