What are you optimizing for?

Saron Yitbarek, creator of CodeNewbie, says this is the one question that will change your life — it did for her. I encourage you to read this from end to end, and then truly ponder this question for your life.

I don’t remember why he said it, but I remember the car we were in on our way to a fancy networking event full of important people doing boss shit when he looked at me and asked, "What are you optimizing for?" ... I don’t think he knew it was that deep. It was.

If reading this makes a significant impact on your life, I want to hear about it. Tweet at us.
