I absolutely love this article. It was written a few years ago but it is still some of the best advice on how we should react to new ideas. I’ve often found that I have the exact same reaction described by the author and I am working hard at mastering the habit of “giving it 5 minutes” instead.
Thanks for sharing this! I certainly resembled the person he describes back when I was a brash 20 something looking to prove something to everyone (insecure and eager to show off I guess). Now I am in my 40’s and I get more satisfaction from growing people and collaborating on ideas together.
I came to your blog looking to read on some of your D3 wisdom but this is far better.
Glad you liked it! 🙂
