It’s easy to forget.
You are working late at night, looking around the room and seeing only you.
You are first one in, in the morning, looking at your IM list and seeing only you online.
You post questions on your SLACK channel, that you later respond to.
The frustration rises up inside of you as you can’t believe that no one else is around to help you when you need it and that you are doing everything else on your own.
But you aren’t.
Maybe no one knows the answers to your questions.
Maybe the rest of the team works different hours.
Maybe some people turn off their IM status so they won’t be bothered.
It’s easy in the heat of the moment to assume no one is there to work with you.
It takes a special team to realize that they are all in it together.
