Pot holes


Running at 1,000mph in full-on project mode is living with risk.

At any moment, before you even see it, a pothole can crack a wheel and trash your suspension.

When that happens, the question isn’t, how did this happen? It’s, how do we recover?

Lots of late nights and running around, communication skills turned up to eleven, pulling together, an undying can-do attitude and a healthy dollop of grit.

Work the problem, repair the wheel, keep on trucking.

And when the dust has settled … review the footage to see what happened and build better systems so it can’t happen again.

Skippy Strategy: Focus on solutions until you’re done – then go back and patch the road.
