Avoid Your Lust For Certainty – Go Get What’s There For The Brave
Your lust for certainty is killing your decision making.
What has happened to us all over the past few months is already having a major economic and social impact on how we see the world of work. What we take out of what we are experiencing, in social as well as economic terms will determine who we are as Australians, what we represent as a country and the kind of future we will create.
This is the start of something amazingly big, these are concerning and exciting times for those prepared to move forward with their eyes wide open to the genuine opportunity yet to come. Like explorers of old.
It’s a deadline. A deadline for millions of people.
Have you ever heard someone say.. “Sorry kids, missed it. Took longer than estimated to organise so we will have to reschedule’?
No, neither have I.
I know this is a sad insight into my brain but for the sake of furthering leadership I’ll take the hit… let’s look at Christmas as a program of work… a collection of complex projects… millions of projects, billions of dependencies, complex supply chains, global distribution, purchasing, budgeting, resourcing… and no ‘boss’.
So how can billions of people achieve the delivery of their Christmas projects, on time, on scope – (roughly within budget)? It’s the biggest program run every year – and there is no overarching governance, no overarching assurance, no status reports… all we have is trust – entrusted leadership, inspiration, and an emotional commitment to deliver.
