In life, there are often no deadlines other than the ones you impose on yourself. I will quit smoking by December. I will go to the gym four times this week. I will send out 200 emails this week.
December, four, and 200 are completely arbitrary. Could I make it January, two, and 100? Of course, but I need to push myself. A loose estimate is not enough. I am not happy with myself when I don’t meet my goals. Honest Question: How do you respond when tech doesn’t meet the “estimations”? Is there anything that can be done by management to alleviate any negative feelings? Can you verbalize what you need to meet the “estimations”? Or at least turn the estimations into deadlines?
There is little that is external to push us. We are defining the product as we go. It’s currently better than anything on the market and is only getting better.
But you’re right Chad, a lack of external deadlines makes it harder. Of course, if we stop leaving the money outlined above on the table, we will all make more money, have greater job security, the ability to move on to things not yet even thought of, and so on. That said, I will continue to think about deadlines and a lack of external motivation.
As far as “Having no idea what we’re doing,” it is all of us, collectively, not knowing what we’re doing. (We all know this was an exaggeration intended to evoke emotion.) It’s not that management doesn’t know what you’re (meaning tech) doing. We know. This business was built five years ago on midnight shifts in home offices. We’re all adjusting.
I think the new incredible office space that is coming will help with this tremendously. Because it’s not just that not being in the office is a problem, it’s that working too much away from the office is also a problem.
(Technical Output x Time) has never been this company’s strongest number
(Meeting Customer Needs x Flexibility) has been and is.
[Note to the reader: those numbers above were shared with tech, but unfortunately, cannot be shared with you.]
