When the house is on fire and the team is sweeping floors, they are working on the wrong thing.

Instead of figuring out how to put the fire out (the hard thing), they are working on the thing that makes them feel comfortable (the easy thing), safe and secure.

The problem is, the floors don’t need to be swept because the house is burning and will eventually burn down because we didn’t stop the fire so now we have no floors to sweep.

This is where you come in, the leader, that helps them identify the priority and path they need to take to know what they should be doing now (the hard stuff) and what can come later (the easy stuff).
