Moving Out + Dumb Experiments + Average Humans

Great presentation from Zach Holman, githubber.

When you find yourself pondering the time you spend at a company — ask yourself:

“Am I improving?”
“Is this company improving?”
“Is the company going to burn in a cashless fire mere months from now?”
“Do I dread the work?”

Then spend some time assessing these things. “Moving up sometimes means moving out.”

“Don’t rely on work for growth, build ridiculous side projects, because dumb experiments become smart patterns.”

“…Most humans are average, even the ‘best’ and ‘coolest’ are pretty dumb.”
