That meeting – the weekly one, where everyone talks about their week but nobody really listens, where objectives are discussed and commitments are given but nobody really cares and accountability is non-existent – that one, should we stop doing that and find a better use for our time?

Those checks we do – that add days and weeks to our schedule but never, ever, find anything that’s worth the delay – those ones, should we stop doing them and put the extra effort into cleaner code and greater responsibility?

What do we always do around here but nobody knows why we still do it? For one go-around, investigate the original purpose and then work out whether it would be better served by doing something else.

Skippy strategy: If the only reason you do things is because you’ve always done those things, it’s a good time stop and ask, What should we stop doing?
