Your “high bar” is wrecking your team

The frustrating thing about this tendency toward setting each other up to fail via artificial bar-setting is that there are very real walls that we as members of a team need to climb over to get our products out the door and solve real-world problems.
The most productive teams I’ve been on are the ones who are pulling each other over these walls in the battle against real-world problems. No, that doesn’t mean that you can pull 10 random software developers together and have an ideal team, but I’d rather have 10 random developers who are in it for each other than 10 superstars who will bar-set each other to a standstill.
