#Infographic Tech Resume

I had heard of 'Infographics'. I had seen them on space.com, like the one below, which is one of my favorites.

Sound bites from 'The Phoenix Project' novel

People before process. 
Feeling of being in control is an illusion. Let go of that feeling and breathe because you can still succeed when you succeed as a team.
