Finding a different or better solution
I'm currently working on a concept for managing the growth of Zammad over the coming years. We have grown by more than 80% every year for the past five years, and we are expecting more than 100% in 2021. The main challenge is finding great new team members who are excited to go through this dynamic process with us.
How to grasp problems and challenges quickly and objectively, how to find the right solution, and how to make the best decision.
Our daily Standup Meeting (every day at 9:00), where I can say „Good Morning“ to my team and chat with them about the day ahead. You won't believe how amazing remote work or home office can be if you have the right atmosphere and tools.
Working remotely is most fun when you don't notice whether you're working from the office or from somewhere else. It's important not to neglect human interaction though.
Obviously about Zammad. What else! :) And about lots of other topics. :)
There's a lot of potential in supermarkets and with parking tickets.
I don't have to. I like my routine!
Daring to have flaws. There is "power" in just giving things a go.
People who create "a lot" from little or nothing.
Being able to trust each other blindly.
So far I've been lucky enough to have sufficient money to do all the things I wanted. One outcome is Zammad. :)
But remember: It's one thing to finance a product. But it's so much more amazing to see how the product finances itself. A great feeling. I can only encourage everyone to give their own ideas a go.
That seems futile. :)
I base it on the state or condition of my environment.
- No risk, no payoff.
- Be different from the rest.
And another important point (even though it's not by me):
- "Imagination is more important than knowledge - because knowledge is limited."
Something about "helping people". And if the neighbors come asking, the reply is definitely always: "Sorry, I don't know much about IT". :)
That's a tough one. But one thing is certain: If I had known how much work it would be, I might have reconsidered it. :-D
