The Power of Saying No

As an engineering leader, saying no is a superpower.

Counter: Saying yes and imagining what’s possible is a superpower.

Honorable mention: Avoiding becoming a gatekeeper or single point of failure is a superpower

TLDR: Build distributed and fault tolerant human systems. Reject what needs to be rejected and say yes to ambitious things you can’t yet conceive.
