Minimizing or maximizing

vines growing along path

The choices people make can either minimize or maximize their organization.

At times, it’s necessary to reduce or make cuts in order to grow.

Working moment to moment without seeing the big picture can stunt your growth.

Looking at the choices you need to make and realizing the possible impact of those actions enables you to make the best possible choices to achieve your goals.

Chasing short-term gains will certainly plug leaks, but may not save the ship. Especially if you don’t know where you are going.

Interactions can be thoughtfully considered or even designed that will minimize or maximize the impact that you want to make.

This is why it’s important to think big picture but to act locally.
