Things will grow


If you’re smart and lucky and have a following wind, things will grow. Beyond the point where you or your team can do everything. Beyond what you can control or even know about.

You can hang on, keep playing catch-up, tie things down and hold things back. They’ll reach a limit of what’s possible without your say-so. You’ll be the bottleneck.

Or not.

You can be the one who sets the limit, or the one who let’s them grow.

By letting go.

Not completely.

Enough to let all those stars on payroll do the job they were hired to do.

And if you’re smart and lucky and the wind holds, things will grow some more.

Skippy Strategy: Don’t hold too tight. Find good people, let them do their job.
