How can I help?

Every notion of meaningful contribution, community, progress, and success is predicated on being able to clearly and precisely answer three questions:

  1. Who am I aiming to serve?*
  2. What’s the solvable problem?
  3. How can I effectively help?

Everything else is a distant — even misleading at times — proxy.

*Sometimes the answer is you!
