Hard to believe it has been two years since I joined Gusto. At the same time, given how much has happened and how much I have learned, it's also hard to believe it has only been two years. In this post, I want to share four most valuable lessons I learned in the past six months since my last bi-annually retrospect. (Past bi-annually retrospects: 6-month, one-year, and 18-month)
- Goal-driven is a losing mindset. It's better to think of everything as an evolving process.
- Dealing with unknowns and humans in the software world.
- Knowing what needs to be done.
- When you are most helpless, you are most empowered.
