How do we know when we’re done, an executive asked me this week. It’s a great question. What is our definition of success? When can we stop? So many activities focus on the announcement, the start, the big release, without fully considering the expiration date, the phase out, the closing. It’s the summit fever in high altitude mountaineering, the compulsion to reach the peak with too little regard for a safe descent. It’s the redundant technology in the work environment or the never-ending career role. It’s why garages and landfills get cluttered with objects. Look around…something might need an exit strategy.
