Tough decisions

Recently I was in a meeting with my management team.

A question was raised.

There was a millisecond available to me to choose whether to justify our current position, or to question it.

The moment was only a fraction of a second.

Fortunately I chose to question our position.

It opened up a can of worms.

I had to admit I was wrong.

That led to some tough decisions being made and some uncomfortable conversations.

And we are a better organisation as a result.

Life is a series of moments, and in each of those moments doors open.

Sometimes the doors don’t stay open beyond those moments.
