When you go on a trip, a vacation, a hike… don’t forget to take pictures and draw a map.
The same applies when doing important work.
When you go ‘there’ again, you have your map. When you find better routes (or worse routes), update your map accordingly.
Doing so makes every trip–and every project–better than the one you did before it. And better than the one your team did, if you’re sharing your map.
Now you all get to spend your time, energy and genius on finding a better way, rather than merely finding a way.
No map is perfect. But a map you and your team continue to refine together is pretty darn close.
Make sure it takes us somewhere amazing.
