Band-aids

We all need a band-aid from time to time. They made us feel better when we were kids. It’s cute when little kids ask for a band-aid, even when they are not bleeding. It’s amazing how their little minds latch on to the placebo affect so quickly. However this phenomenon isn’t cute when a team full of adults long for the placebo affect to make them feel better about an area of needed improvement on the team. Doing something often satisfies our innate desire for resolution. Unfortunately doing anything just for the sake of satiating that desire doesn’t mean it actually solved the problem. When something is hurting but not bleeding, a band-aid solution won’t actually make it better, even if we feel better for slapping it on there.
