If it Doesn’t Make Sense, Speak Up

As a kid, I would play some video games that straight-up sucked. I’d wonder if the developers had the self-awareness to know they were shipping a mediocre game. But no one intends to make a trash video game. Later I learned after working in software for a few years that making bad products is common and pretty easy.

I read a tweet awhile back stating that behind every failed product is someone who stayed silent in a meeting. It’s common for people to feel uneasy but not express their concerns in a meeting. Don’t ever be that guy. Always speak up. Always voice your concerns. You might just prevent a failure.
