I see brakes everywhere. Racing towards what we could do with all these amazing tools, these powerful collaboration services, these openers of doors, I see people jamming their brakes and looking around in all directions. When you see the crossroads, step on it.
What will happen? You could lose control. You might crash. You might smash into someone doing the same thing going the other way.
Or you could make it through unscathed, exhilarated, and ready to race into what’s next.
Every move I made with my own career can be summed up by stepping on it when I saw the crossroads coming. Sometimes, I skidded off the road. Sometimes, I made a wrong turn (don’t ask Kat about how OFTEN I make wrong turns). But all in all, it’s worked well as a tactic.
I dunno. The alternative to stepping on it is to jam the brakes.
