Sacred cows lose their sacredness when we are hungry. It is true that while necessity is the mother of all invention, she is also the butcher of the sacred cow. We tend to throw things overboard when we need to. Sentiment is lower on the priority list when the choice is survival or status quo. This is why it is important to make good decisions that keep the team moving forward before we allow nostalgia to hinder us. We honor the memory of the past best when we don’t allow it to linger fruitlessly in the present.
