Chaotic, Beautiful Snowflakes

On the necessity of leadership
  • Michael Lopp


You arrive at work. You sit down at your desk and scan your inbox for potential disasters. Two emails pique your interest. You write brief responses to nudge the engineers in the right direction. Nothing else is urgent, so you walk to the kitchen to get breakfast. You sit down with three fellow engineers who are also working on your product. During conversation over the course of breakfast, you discover that you and Phil are working on exactly the same problem, so you decide that Phil is going to take point and you two will chat once he’s done.
