Hi ๐Ÿ‘‹,
I'm Candost.

I am an engineering manager, software engineer, and writer.

I used to think that reading will make me smart.

One day, ten pages before finishing a book, I realized that I had read that same book before. At that point, my life changed.

Now, I don't care how many books I read; I take many notes, connect dots, and share what I've found on this blog and my newsletter.

โ€œWhat if the goal was to do better work this week than we did the week before? To make this month better than the last month? For no other reason than because we want to leave the organization in a better state than we found it?โ€ -Simon Sinek
