Be your authentic self ...

Picture by Naishadh Gadani

You might remember your current attitude already from your Kindergarten time (more or less), as it is not really changing over time. In my case I used it to become an Engineer and I am still trying to reuse available solutions, instead of coming up with the 150th "new wheel invention" 😎.

Smart people did invent the tools that support your ways of working, make use of most of the available functionality and not just the 5% that everybody knows. And more complexity is no guarantee for nothing, make things simpler to gain broad understanding and acceptance with your audience. 

One authentic guy with the right kind of attitude is Yvon Chouinard. "Rather than selling the company or taking it public, Chouinard, his wife and two adult children have transferred their ownership of Patagonia, valued at about $3 billion, to a specially designed trust and a nonprofit organization."

Another example is Tijen Onaran and her long lasting beliefs (only in German).

The choice is your's, you just have to take the right decision, based on your attitude and authentic self👍. One helpful tool could be the Eisenhower Matrix for example.
