Stress Optional

Stress Optional

Is stress an optional ingredient to the pursuit of making a difference?

Let’s take a look:

‘Important’ stand-up meetings to figure out who’s falling behind, or thoughtful when-you-get-a-minute write-ups from everyone involved?

Tightly scheduled hustle to make sure everything gets done, or planned breathing space between methodical tasks to make sure everything gets done well?

Arbitrary financial targets to keep everyone focused on ensuring the P&L stays in the black, or lean operations to keep the team focused on doing important work?

Usually, the stress is an optional ingredient. Add it if you want to, or not. Your choice.
