Colorado Tech Weekly #16: Better beautiful than perfect anyway

Colorado Tech Weekly Binary FlagColorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 information technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local events every Monday morning!

When attempting to juggle all of my roles it’s important to remember that juggling is hard. You can only juggle for so long before your arms get tired and you get out of sync. Things will get dropped, but there’s a good chance you can pick them up before too many people notice. Just smile and pretend it’s part of the act. It’s better to be beautiful than perfect.
