“Going with the flow is the antithesis of having an impact.”
Going against the current
Countless times within our lifetime we struggle with crippling doubt whether to pursue our ideas, smaller or bigger. Hestitation and impostor syndrome are present even when potential opportunities don’t present significant chances of failure.
As we look at running an experimental event like &yetConf, it was a tremendous risk to take—logistically and financially challenging for a small consultancy like us. But we strongly believed in its mission as well as the potential impact, and by pouring our hearts and effort in, it ended up being exactly the connection enabling and throught provoking environment we’ve wanted to foster.
We tend to forget that the lessons from failure are invaluable. Pursuing challenging goals, often while being discouraged to push forwards by others, is essential for growth or potentially achieving our objectives. Sometimes the things we fear the most are worth pursuing the most. I’d say, do it anyway.
We’ve launched a new, shiny CLI for requireSafe—now it’s even easier to find possible vulnerabilities in your projects. Go ahead and discover new features!
requireSafe is also now available as a static analysis tool on CodeClimate! Read about the partnership on ^lift’s blog.
