The Cost of Inaction
I remember being surprised that the concept of zero was unclear to Greek philosophers and mathematicians. Now that I am older, I do see everyday people struggle with the understanding that nothing can in fact be something. Teams that do not understand the cost of inaction will struggle to realize their goals. Hesitation is rarely the best course. Doing nothing is usually a fear-based decision that delays the inevitable. The cost of inaction is time and therefore preparation. Waiting for fear of the inevitable only wastes time because what we fear is going to happen. Do something. Make a mistake that causes learning or make a play that makes a difference. Doing nothing is a choice but it’s rarely the best one.
