This week I was inspired by a medium post
that David Heinemeier Hansson recently wrote. If you don’t know @DHH
, he is the creator of Ruby on Rails and Founder & CTO at Basecamp, formerly 37signals). As I used to sell Ruby on Rails consulting, I’ve been following him for some time.
His idea is that, of course, it is super easy to blame others when things go wrong. But looking back and analyzing missteps and identifying flaws, though indeed useful, is incomplete. He suggests you do the harder work and absorb as much blame and responsibility as possible.
The intention is that your introspection will rub off on others.
