The first 90 days

If I had written this paragraph, it would have also included the words "panic" and "anxiety." But this is a good summary of my first 90 days.

During times of rapid growth, a team doesn't necessarily take the time to stop and get to know each other because they arrive and the first thing they notice is, "Whoa. Everyone is in a big fucking hurry, so I must hurry as well." Their normal instincts regarding getting to know those around them are buried in their goal of being recognized as a person who is also in a hurry.
