“The wise man will live as long as he ought, not as long as he can” – Seneca
This quote also applies to the work we do in the marketplace:
- A project or product that lived longer than it ought may be in need of retirement so you can focus on what’s next. Is it still valuable?
- A side project or responsibility that holds no future for you or your team may need shedding so you can commit to what could.
Some things we hold dear won’t make it through 2019.
Accepting this allows us to focus on what will, rather than merely holding on to the past.
Leave that to your competitors.
