Two Years at Gusto: Everything But Code

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)

  1. Goal-driven is a losing mindset. It’s better to think of everything as an evolving process.
  2. Dealing with unknowns and humans in the software world.
  3. Knowing what needs to be done.
  4. When you are most helpless, you are most empowered.
