The world turns


As things evolve new responsibilities emerge. We used to need that but now we need this other thing too, or this new thing need to replace the old, or the old just isn’t necessary any more because we’ve replaced with this. No surprises, the world turns and every new day is a little different than the last, and every choice we make to change means thing will eventually change.

The only thing left is to respect the change and do something about it. If that means changing responsibilities and accountabilities, what of it? The work is the work. Except when the change in responsibilities exposes as gap in capability, when the new work can’t be done by the existing team, when the change demands changes you don’t want to make.

The ultimate choice: what the work demands or stop the world turning.

Skippy strategy: When the world turns, go with it.
