Am I OK?

Maybe. It depends on which day you’re asking me.

Why?

Taking it personally

Michael Jordan quote from “The Last Dance” — now a popular Internet meme

Am I really OK?

  • We have many things to be proud of, so I must have at least made some good decisions.
  • We’re a mission-driven company: everyone on the team is making some sort of sacrifice because we believe we’re making things materially better.
  • The team gets me through it. That’s why it’s so important to build a great team. They are the ones I can lean on when I’m feeling terrible.

I’ll survive.
