We overweight our reliance on technology, and we underweight our understanding of community.
In a modern era where starting a new community is as simple as spinning up a new Cloud instance of Invision Community, everyone has equal access to starting a community. And when everyone has equal access to starting a community, it becomes infinitely harder to stand out. You should stop worrying about utilizing the latest features, the latest buzzy hack, or installing the must-have application.
You should instead be focusing on building your knowledge of psychology, of sociology, of organizational management, of emotional intelligence and leadership, of strategic thinking. These are key skills that will help you build value in your community that extends beyond the technology - that no one else can match.
