Doing Nothing

Doing nothing takes patience. Great teams wait for the right moment to implement the next step. They leave the problem open so that it stays at the forefront of the team’s mind until they can address the area properly. By slapping a band-aid or quick fix on the problem, we take the consequences of the problem out of plain sight. The saying is true, “out of sight, out of mind”. Of course that is the point of resolving a problem too soon. We are sick of looking at it and want it resolved. It takes discipline to do nothing. If you think that doing nothing is irresponsible, you are no different than a football player that demands to get back on the field too soon after an injury. Yes, you can probably limp around, but you risk further injury by refusing to do nothing instead of waiting for the correct time to return.
