Too Cool to Care Too Much
I never understood the whole “I’m too cool to try hard” or ” I’m too cool to show an interest in what other people are interested in” attitude. Great teammates are nerdy about their job and team. They obsess because they care. Caring is often underrated in the “cool” circles. Caring is a sign of appreciation. Appreciation is the result of experience. Usually the cool kids are faking it to make it and don’t know enough to have a little of the healthy anxiety that leads to an obsession that serves the team well.
