Many teams thrive on just one strategy that works.
What if it didn’t?
Let’s play a little game of “Take it away, what now”:
- That client source. Take it away, what now? If it stopped working, how would you access your market?
- That product advantage. Take it away, what now? If you open-sourced it, how would you raise the bar next?
- That nest egg. Take it away, what now? How would you slash costs, get creative, be resourceful?
The thing about stoically ploughing on in the face of adversity, is that the adversity is optional.
Bad things don’t need to happen for us to play the game.
