The Most Critical Career Mistake You Can Make

The most critical career mistake you can make isn't a secret. Are you in control? If you aren't driving your career, who is?

What if the best thing you could do was nothing?

Not indefinitely, of course - but often, we intervene in the world when the right choice is to do nothing.

This is uncomfortable because it is unfamiliar, but might be the most critical change you can make in your thought process.

✨ Sponsor:  Around

Thank you to Around for their support of Developer Tea!

More people are working remotely than ever. And that means more video meetings than ever. But it doesn't have to be a drag with bad UX, fatiguing full-screen takeovers, and everything we hate about video meetings. Around is changing the game with a tool made specifically for remote teams to get work done together.

Check out their awesome features (like AI camera framing, auto-filters, and much more) at!
