I like to work with people who care.
I seek teams that fail fast and exchange thoughtful feedback. I tend to find this when interests are aligned by shared passion— maybe IPOing Twitter, maybe training a cohort of students.
I seek progress, but am OK where I am.
Through writing, meditating and moving I try remind myself that am I enough, right now.
I enjoy solving problems and finding the right problem to solve.
I won't fix bugs when a new app is needed. I won't build an app when a new business is needed. I won't build a business when I can support an existing one.
My biggest challenge is finding balance.
Living my life as described above makes me really happy, but sometimes I go too far.
Sometimes seeking continuous feedback leads me to solve shallow problems. Sometimes I try to be fearless and end up thoughtless. Sometimes my bias towards action causes me to give up on good ideas too soon.
I seek moderation, knowing I'll never really get there, but I'll be happier if I try.
