This tweet is one I stand by:
“If someone ever tells you I sent them to you to do something for them, DO NOT believe them. I will always check with you before volunteering you for an additional task.” - @engineering_bae
I strive to minimize the work-in-progress for my team and keep everyone focused during their maker time. Nothing is worse than some random task interrupting one’s flow. I also will check with you to see if you can fit a jump ball into your schedule and work to understand the demands on your time.
