The project graveyard is better than a speech
Don’t be that guy.
You know, the one that is always at the meetup.
He knows everyone, he sees every blog post, he understands every reference you throw at him.
That conference? He’s there! You have 18 mutual connections on LinkedIn, amazing!
Fantastic, until you ask about the work, he’s doing.
Then, it is silent.
That guy doesn’t make an impact – it’s nothing but hot air.
Be the person who tries. There are far more lessons in understanding failure and far better mentors available for those who can discuss what went wrong and wonder why.
The guy that talks too much is too busy talking to notice, though.
