This past Sunday, I had a 30 min conversation with Geoffrey Lake picking his brain about how he managed his Best New Entry Team at University of Colorado Boulder. After giving me a much better idea of what we were getting into in terms of cost and organization, he emphasized three things:
- Perfection is the Enemy of Good Enough
- Love your project, it’ll show and motivate others
- and KISS – keep it simple stupid
On a more technical side, he gave us tips on seals, design, and software.
I have to say he was extremely helpful and nice, willing to answer questions and offered to let us contact him with any other questions. Thanks Geoffrey!!
