A friend recently shared the experience of building a house. The house was designed by an architect and was everything they wanted. The only thing was, the architect designed it to be beautiful, but not easy to build. My friend shared how excited they were at the final outcome, but lamented the time and money it took to complete the house.
This sort of situation happens all the time in business. Leaders want a project fast, but want it at a low cost with high quality. That combination doesn’t work. If you want it fast and high quality, it typically costs more.
As you think about your overall goals, it is important to think through the outcomes you are looking for and adjust expectations accordingly.
