It's Dangerous to go Alone

Building companies, products, and really anything worthwhile takes a tremendous amount of effort and time.

Full stop.

So the next time you’ve got your face in your hands at your desk, stressed, and feeling apathetic — don’t give in. Call a friend. We stand on the shoulders of giants today for everything that’s come before and you can bet your ass that those that came before learned and got help from many around them.

You should too.

Your friends are there for you. Your colleagues are there to help you. You are not a messiah who has to etch product requirements into a rock face and pass it down. Build with others, get their input, and ask them to share in your burdens.

Not only will this help you achieve greater things, it will motivate and retain those colleagues as well. Happiness is born from solving challenging problems and is not diminished by the number of people who helped solve them.

Take on the challenges of letting others support you, I personally found this just as hard as getting good at my craft.

I look forward to seeing what you all can achieve.
