> Build tools that everyone can use - If you see a pattern of everyone solving a problem manually, consider building tooling to simplify that workflow and spread it to maximize its usefulness.
Big fan of this one. Restacked with a quote
I really like the Ownership advice. I have heard many times about “taking ownership of the work”, and I did have an idea of what is meant by that, but I think this is the first time I have heard a comprehensive explanation of what it really means.
Great article Ryan! Helpful all-around, but I particularly agree with you about influencing without authority. Even if you have the authority, talking to people like equals and winning them over with precise arguments instead of commands is a great strategy
This quote is exactly what I thinking about this article: "They take complex topics and explain them simply. This makes it easy for them to influence others". So readable and easy to understand, thank you!
I loved this post!
This could arguably be a daily morning read to remind yourself, like a mantra, to give your best every single day.
Code ROI, understand the WHY and the ownership mentality were my 2 favorite points.
It's easy to fall into the trap of getting much work done thinking you're doing well...
Love the ideas, all are very well explained and with great examples. I wonder if you have any more resources to share specifically regarding writing and speaking, I feel like those are a high priority for me atm.
Keep up the great work!
There is a false perception that 10X engineers are ‘brilliant jerks’, and don’t like to help other. I would say that by definition those are not 10X engineers.
Uplifting Others is a must - sharing your knowledge (and time) for the benefit of others and the community. Every 10X engineer I met is always willing to help (with the appropriate caveats)
