Buzz Andersen writes about work, motivation and getting the 'final cut',
If I had to identify a theme in my career thus far, it would probably be that I’m on a lifelong search for ways to build things I am passionate about, in ways I can be proud of, with people I respect and am respected by, without sacrificing my integrity. At this point I’ve been a large company employee (Apple and others), a bootstrapped indie developer (PodWorks, Birdfeed), and a part of both early stage and maturing startups (Square, Tumblr). Each of these phases in my career has held its own particular joys and frustrations, but looking back, the efforts that have brought me the most consistent personal satisfaction and produced the results I was most proud of have undoubtedly been the ones where I’ve had “final cut,” to borrow the filmmaking term.
