Things that move


Whatever the issue – whatever! the issue – every day you don’t deal with it is another day you have to deal with not dealing with it. Working out ways to go around it, spending time and attention doing things the long way instead of the short way, keeping it in mind so you don’t trip up, again, whenever you try to move forward.

Let’s say the issue you never deal with is that difficult person, or the underinvestment in new product development, or the bottleneck in production – you spend so much time navigating around the issue, you spend a lot less time doing the things you need to do that will move the rest of the business forward. The result: we never get to do the things we know we need to do.

Skippy strategy: Deal with the issue, so you can work on actual things that move us forward.
