Which do I do first?
Which do I focus on more?
Do I Lead the Team on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Code the other days of the week?
What if someone has a question on a Wednesday do I push it to Thursday?
You do both – it’s not an Either/Or, it’s a Both/And equation.
We need leaders who will only lead in Software about as much as we need coders who will only code.
Do both, realize you need to both, figure out what works, don’t compartmentalize – find the bridge between the two and make it work.
If you’re afraid – good.
If you’re unsure – good.
If you’re confused – good.
That means you’re on the path to doing both.
