The information age has created somewhat of a paradox. While the world has access to the wisdom of several ages, we continue to work from a position of professional and individual absolutes.
In a world that argues for best practices and processes within each profession, what if we considered the actual construct Aristotle proposed nearly 2400 years ago? The whole is not the same as the sum of its parts.
There was a point in time when individuals had to learn code, design, and understand the business in order to make things work. While this was more challenging than today, the benefits to me were immense. I learned early on that success wasn’t about how we got to the solution. It was how we always got to a better solution, together.
