We want everything to be working and going smoothly.
But no project has ever been like that.
There will always be ups and downs, different states, where we are behind or ahead.
Some days you will have bright red roadblocks while other days are smooth sailing.
Whatever state you’re in, it won’t always be Green (this is good), what is even better, is being up front with everyone about it.
It’s only when we’re honest with where we are at, with your team, with your client, with your project, with whoever, when we can actually start to move forward, otherwise we will always be behind, but everyone will think we’re okay, which is a dangerous state to be in.
