I had the misfortune recently of sitting in on a meeting that was quickly swallowed up by the Vortex of Can?t. Everyone, not nearly everyone, I mean everyone, was discussing the things that they can?t do. This by the way was with a group of people who are paid to do what they can.
After 45 minutes of listening to this I announced I was leaving the meeting. I suggested they invite me back to another meeting when they were ready to discuss what they could do. I haven?t heard anything from the group yet.
I believe that success in any endeavor is about momentum. Momentum is actually pretty easy to build and that?s the good news. The bad news is that it?s also easy to build momentum in the wrong direction.
Discussing all the things you can?t do in a planning meeting is building momentum in the wrong direction.
