Most of your peers will approach you in regards to your area or product: a new feature, a small idea, a big problem, a bug, a change, a manager giving an order.
Your attitude and approach with all of them should be the same:
- Why should we build that?
- Why do you think it is important?
- What problem are we trying to solve?
You will not be able to do everything. Only what counts. So make sure it counts.
