I dread this question. A little secret about myself is that I’ve been interviewing forever. It’s this sick addiction, I swear it’s like a disease. My curiosity can and will eat me alive.
It’s weird. You would think that the question, “What are you weaknesses?” would choke me up but nope, I am so self-aware that I can answer that question like a professional. I know I have a lot of room for improvement but that’s because I expect it. I want and like being imperfect. Right now, I’m that piece of the puzzle that just doesn’t fit, or that line of code that keeps fucking things up.
The most attractive and important quality in a person is their ability to make a decision. If you can’t answer a simple yes or no question, my question is why? You have two options and no one can move forward on an answer like maybe. Well, maybe I like you. What does that mean? Here’s an example, maybe I like hot sauce. If you don’t try it or don’t use the hot sauce, then it means no you do not like hot sauce. If you try it and use it …it means yes. My point is to make a decision, and fail fast. From there, you can always pivot because you can always make the decision right. Stop getting stuck on making the right decision.
Make a decision.
Make the decision right.
