If you're taking the lead in a serious project, the best way to achieve success is to take it personally.
In my experience, the most complex problems we've faced and managed to solve have followed certain patterns:
❌ They were not resolved within the regular process flow.
❌ They were not addressed with consensus and shared accountability.
❌ They were not fixed within the regular working shift.
✔️ They were solved through intensive work and the use of war rooms.
✔️ They were tackled with perseverance and extreme accountability.
✔️ They were handled by working harder.
They were solved because the people that worked on them, they were not just assigned a project, they took it personal.
Things that you should not take personally:
- Projects of minor importance,
- Personal feedback,
- Decisions that go against your opinion (embrace the principle of "disagree and commit").
