There is a time for convenience and a time for challenge. Our job should be made more convenient when it comes to tedious tasks and steps in a process. Our work should be streamlined to allow us to be as efficient as possible. Convenience should allow us to work smarter and not harder. Unfortunately, there are times that efficiency is not the goal because what the team is attempting is so challenging that no one on the team has developed an efficient way. At this point, it’s smart to grind through the inconvenient inefficiency so that the team can move forward. Over time, the new territory will be conquered and made efficient but not until inconvenient experience is gained.
