re: Did you have a specific catalyst in your career that boosted your professional growth? What was it? VIEW POST


I'll speak to a couple of mine:

  1. I often looked for mentorship but after a long time of searching and having ill-fated mentoring sessions, I decided mentorship was a luxury that not everyone gets and I'd have to buckle down, create my own curriculum, actionable goals, with testable results. I did so, and am in a MUCH better space in my career. The specific moment was in realizing I was on my own.

  2. I remember getting incredibly frustrated on a code problem years ago, and noticed that my most senior colleagues never, ever appeared to get upset when they hit a roadblock. It appeared like they anticipated that the problems would arise, and therefore always kept a cool head about themselves. that small mindset shift was huge to me.
