When I was growing up, I was told the more responsibilities a man takes on, the greater he becomes. A simple phrase that went on to shape my world view. It became the filter I saw the world through. That's how I ranked people around me and that's what I was striving for to leave behind. 

In my head, more equaled to progress. So I spent my entire 20s looking for more things to take care of. More responsibilities. More people. More money. And as I was going up this ladder, I slowly lost sight of the ground. Where I started from. Who I was. What I wanted. So you can guess what happened next. After a couple of breakdowns, I stopped. 

Now I'm in my 30s believing the opposite. The fewer things you are responsible for, the greater you can become. I thought I was doing a good job on all of those things when I was younger. But it turned out, I wasn't. 

You would be surprised how similar it is in our work. As a founder, growing a company sometimes feels like raising a kid. So if you teach this kid that the more things you are able to do, the greater you become, you know now where that leads. Most startups start simple but after a couple of years of taking on more requests, more responsibilities, they lose sight on what they were actually good at. Now they are just another all-in-one tool that are not really doing a good at any. 

Resist the urge to do more. 
Progress by doing less.

Tools we use and why

While most teams believe they shape their tools to fit their processes, we believe the opposite. We believe the tools we use influence our processes and thereof shape our companies culture. In this post, I'm sharing our current toolbox as well as my opinion on the alternatives.
