I can’t do this without new Tool x.

If only we had this software everything would be perfect.

After a practice, where I felt like I fell 10 times on the ice, I went to get changed thinking my skates MUST be dull – it can’t be me – I could not have been THAT bad.

Turns out the skates were fine, both edges were sharp, but the skater was dull đŸ™‚

It’s so easy to go to a conference or watch a video on YouTube and think “YES” – the answer to our problems, by that piece of software and we are golden, our problems for life are solved.

But that’s rarely the case – sometimes despite the best tools, the problem isn’t with the software but the operators.

And sometimes, it’s only after that realization that you go – “It’s me, us, our process” – and from there you start to figure out how to make it better.

If you’re are unwilling to step back and look at the problem, you will always think that there is a silver bullet out there that can solve your problems.
