Years ago, before online shopping, a few friends and I happily drove three hours to an Armani outlet in Manchester, Vermont. I loved the luxurious Italian suits and coats but couldn’t afford the hefty price.
Unfortunately, nothing caught my eye. If I were in Boston, I’d leave. But since I drove all the way there, I had to buy something. After checking out practically every item multiple times, I finally purchased a leather coat.
I was determined to purchase something because I had already invested so much time to get there.
The same happens with our projects. If we commit resources to get something done, we’ll stick with it much longer. The tricky part is understanding when to cut our losses and when to push through.
How might you design your projects so you push through when needed and stop when necessary?
Thanks for caring!
