Knowing is cool. Sharing even better.

·

If you knew stuff, you got punched in the face. Early school memories. It was cool not to know. Not to care. Not to share.

Later at work: knowledge meant power. Box it, put it away from others to steal. Most depressing, depriving, demotivating state for open minds.

As a rookie with much too little knowledge you develop skills to survive.

1️⃣ Self-starting: put in the work.
2️⃣ Ask well-weighted questions to the right person at the right time for optimal impact.
3️⃣ Proactively share your own thoughts – to motivate others sharing theirs. #butterflyeffect
4️⃣ Cautiously grow alliances with like-minded that share, teach, and learn. Due diligence obligatory.

Times changed. Culture changed. Luckily.

There’s a lot of content out there today. Still many great minds struggle with number 3.

Number 3 is hard.
Exposing yourself is hard.
Pressing ENTER is hard.

What if what I know is trivial?
What will others think of me?
Who am I to put this out there?

I feel this barrier is even greater in tech-ish professions.
Solutions Engineering, specifically.

That’s about to change, too. There’s a huge SE alliance now.
98% of you know it: PreSales Collective.

Knowing good stuff is cool.
Sharing good stuff even greater.
