What I took away from the article is not to work hard, but to believe in your ability to fix stuff. You should also be willing to stand up for what you think is right. Most developers and creatives avoid conflict and would rather bury their head in the computer screen or find a quite place to paint. This article is about stepping up and making your voice heard. At least that’s my takeaway from it. Of course that could just be my perspective because I’d prefer to bury my head in the computer and find another job. Being in a startup is hard. I’ve done it twice now. Both failed. Once because of some things out of my control and once because I didn’t step up. I will do things differently in my next one which is on the drawing board now.
