Our tendency is to “Scorch Earth” when something isn’t going right instead of to tweak it.

On your phone too much? Toss it out.

The Project not going well? Start over from scratch.

Platform keeping you down? Go find a new one.

It doesn’t have to be all or nothing.

Instead of tossing your phone, delete the offending app(s) and see what changes.

Instead of starting over on your project, focus on an area of improvement to be better for the next meeting.

Instead of starting from scratch, pick the feature that you are missing and see what you can build.

The tendency is to Scorch Earth and do it “our way” to make “real change” happen, but all we are doing is starting all over again and that can’t be the answer every time.
