"We only grow when we are doing things that makes us uncomfortable." by John Sonmez

I have been following John Sonmez for a while now. He has personally guided and motivated me during the conception of my blog.

I never really focused on my people skills until I was exposed to a lot of people when I joined a corporate in 2014. I was intrigued.

Integrating with technologies and writing software for me is relatively easy but getting people to work cohesively together is more challenging.

On 24 May 2016, John Sonmez gave a talk at Xamarin Evolve 2016 called "5 Soft Skills Every Software Developer Should Know" which I'd like to share today.

He wrote that it's about mindset and overcoming your fears. I absolutely love his talk because I can relate so much to it.
