Do you have the champion mindset 💪 of a world-class tech leader?

Do you look in the mirror and say, “I am a leader! 🦸 Let’s make it happen!”

Do you have what it takes to whether any storm your team, your org, or the world throws at you? 😎

Turtling isn’t moving.

If everything is a test, if you always feel under assault, then you cease forward motion.

Circled wagons don’t get to Oregon.

These are the thoughts in my head after a recent conversation where the person I was speaking with saw themselves as an underdog in an adversarial system. Work isn’t supposed to be like this. And neither is life.

Or are you putting things off?

A type of bullying I’ve personally experienced is making someone wrong for wanting more out of themselves, their work, and their life. I see this showing up in the folks we talk to as well and it’s time to put a stop to it.

You’ll often hear time and money being equated in business. The fact of the matter is that time is way more valuable than money.

Your time is a finite, non-refundable, non-renewable resource and the kicker is, you don’t know how much you had to start with.

And you just made more money listening to this!

It takes a plan, and it takes action.

Right now, there are thousands of tech managers trying to build their dream careers.

They’re working their butts off 50+ hours a week…
They’re putting their heads down hoping that one day it’ll pay off…
They’re spending their free time reading tons of leadership books and articles …

And despite…

There are at least 2 kinds of optimism in the world.

One shines a light in a dark room, helping you find the door to something better. The other lulls you into complacency, numbing the pain of the dark.

If there are things in your life that are “this sucks but I can deal with it, its temporary” you too may be addicted to Hopeium.
