try hard, failing and sharing the learnings from a failure will only make us all better at what we do.

Do not get blinded by the wrong metrics and aim for vanity figures and results. In order to grow, you need to look at the right metrics.
And then, improve them.
Individual Seriousness actually enables Collective Fun.
Ultimately, our team is Fun and Serious.
