Interesting windows


Everything is in flux. What was true yesterday may not be so tomorrow.

The good – you have people and processes and technologies and systems and partners and customers and a mess of interrelated connections that all rely on the others being in place. Any one of these may change. Any one of these changes can ripple – for better or worse.

The assumptions – you have limitations and boundaries within which you live. When did you last check to see if your beliefs were still valid? Maybe the bad actor has moved on, maybe the technology has caught up with your fantasy, maybe the partner is now walking in your direction, maybe now is the time.

Every spit and sputter in the flux presents opportunities and risks. Eyes wide open, double check, look for openings, don’t leave assumptions unattended.

Skippy strategy: Interesting windows opened when you weren’t looking.
