The Automattic creed states:

I will never pass up an opportunity to help out a colleague, and I’ll remember the days before I knew everything.

In my short six months here I’ve shied away from helping people, thinking to myself “if I tried to help, I’d fail” because “I’m only the new guy” and “there’s no way I could know the answer”. It is time to lose the bull crap excuses and dig in. Sure, it can be awkward, and sometimes scary when you’re new. But as of today, I will not be missing any more opportunities to help my colleagues and expand my own knowledge.
