# People Management
That was the only guy on the team that understood half their systems...
Even in our fantasies, meetings still exist.
Before you can manage others, first learn to manage yourself.
Whoohoo! No work today!
Team performance is headed straight up!
Wait, what were they going to cut?!
Did you know that feedback requests often hunt in packs?
Resist the bias to hire or mentor people that remind you of yourself — not only will others miss out, but YOU will miss out on the opportunity to learn and grow from other's fresh perspectives!
Are you a morning person?

This coach changed my life.
So that's where all the leftover Halloween candy went.
Great progress everyone!
Don't do this.
No way I'm gonna remember this...
You can do it team! I just know you can!
I want growth opportunities but not THIS opportunity.
Quality is important.
Mind if I get an update real quick?

It's difficult to quantify what makes YOU awesome.
You gotta take care of yourself.
When it comes to the team building budget, you use it or lose it.

I'm gonna need to break some recent habits...
At first it's important to say 'Yes', later it's important to say 'No'...
To me, every feature launch feels like the control room at the end of Apollo 13
We all have feelings.
If you're not growing, you're dying.
We've gotta go deeper.
Why didn't I think about this sooner?
Oh hey, what's this?
Does your calendar look like this?
You may be in one right now!
Giving tough feedback can be tough...
Has anyone tried this?
Hello? Is this IT? I did it again.
Simply nothing can be done...
Everything goes perfect, pretty much every time...
Welcome to adulthood Harry Potter
Your team's one shot to deliver on those Q4 roadmap goals...
