When you sprint, you know where you are going, you can see the finish line, everyone can, that’s why they are all running fast, because they can see it.
But when you can’t see the finish line, sprinting early on doesn’t do much help to you for a variety of reasons;
- You could be running in the wrong direction.
- You could have the wrong directions.
- You don’t know what you’ll need to get there.
- The team might not know what to do when they get there.
- Even if you know what direction you’re headed in, do you have the right tools to get there?
If you can’t see the finish line, it’s hard to motivate your team to start sprinting towards it (chances are if you can’t see it, they won’t be able to either).
