Review and refine
We often think, “if only I knew how to do X, it would make things so much easier.”
Time is then spent exploring how to learn what we think we need.
But how we work with technology is a bit like cooking.
For example, adding more liquid to cake batter that is runny won’t make your cake better, it will just make it runnier.
Sometimes, adding is NOT what you need.
To continue the cake baking metaphor, to resolve it, you may be able to add more flour, or if it is too far gone, you may have to let it go and start again.
If something isn’t working the way you want it to, it doesn’t always mean you don’t have the skills or need to start from scratch. Sometimes you simply need to optimize or change your current process.
Systems and processes should always be reviewed and refined.
That’s how we increase efficiency.
When questioned about failure, Thomas Edison reportedly said, “I didn’t fail, I just worked out 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
It’s pretty unusual for systems and processes to be perfect the first time.
Rather than add more to technology in an effort to “fix” something, why not try stepping back, reviewing and refining instead?
