It's easy to get in the rhythm of getting better at something. After all, it feels good to be competent. But, context changes. Instead of getting better, consider the broader system and community to understand where you connect. Learn where others are struggling and where you can improve the overall work being done.
We're in this together. Ask why to get to the bottom. Bring others with you and work together from the ground up to build something better, something more collaborative. Chances are, your team will be more motivated, engaged, and invested. Money can't buy that kind of commitment.
