Success Shaming

Teams should be careful to avoid the mindset that what they do to be successful is somehow wrong because others feel shame due to the choices they make that result is less success. There is a gravity that pulls us away from what is best towards those who are not willing to do what it takes to launch into a trajectory that results in the best possible outcome. Great teams and great teammates do not allow mediocre choices to become normal through the ridicule of those who call the necessary effort “extreme” or “unreasonable”.
