Outcomes that we feel are worthwhile drive us. By focusing on a business outcome we’re acknowledging that estimates are never accurate and that we can’t anticipate everything up front. Murphy’s Law tells us that shit will happen.

Write down 10 or 20 things that in all honesty won’t make a big difference to yourselves or your business and don’t do them or do them extremely quickly and not brilliantly well. Because you are not an idiot, and have the best interests of the company in mind, explain to people calmly and politely why that is not a focus.
