No one ever got anywhere having a negative approach to the problem.
- The other team has much faster coders.
- If we had their tools, we’d be a stronger team.
- The rules are unfair.
- They get all the perks and we get nothing.
- Our timelines are always too tight, we never have enough time.
When has being negative to any of those problems ever solved anything?
Change doesn’t happen overnight – you can’t fix the “rules” in one fell swoop or address the timeline issue all at once.
They happen over time with the implementation of consistent, incremental steps.
The real problem is that all those steps, when all laid out in front of us, is “too much” work and can’t be addressed as a quick fix.
So it’s easier to be negative about the whole thing.
