Should we dissect it, figure it out – or should we invent it by trial and error, by trying new things and discarding everything that doesn’t work?
What causes success?
What causes failures?
Always easier to answer that second question – because when things go badly, we examine what happened, when plans fail or projects flop we go into self-examination mode, we ask hard questions, we dissect … or we should. That’s how we improve, don’t we?
Or, do we improve better when we examine our successes? Examine our ‘things that work well’, examine them thoroughly, deeply – maybe there are more lessons there.
Let’s examine both.
Isn’t success rooted in planning + execution – not planning OR execution?
Morning Mark, Well said... too many tasks without focus results in too few accomplished. I wonder if Beethoven (or other wonderful musicians) composed focusing on one piece at a time. Harmony with focus, JR, Calgary, AB
