One of the vexing problems most, if not all, large organizations face is “analysis paralysis” — the tendency to over-analyze and over-think a situation, resulting in no action being taken. It’s also one of the main reasons why startups (YOU!) consistently kick incumbents asses.
But if you’re not careful the same problem can creep into your own organization — even when you’re small. And for you the problem can be deadly, as you simply don’t have the resources and multiple revenue streams well established companies have.
The credo you should live by is:
A good decision made quickly is far better than a great decision made slowly.
As we have discussed here at The Heretic before here and here, speed is one (if not the main advantage you have). Protect it at all cost. And understand that great is the enemy of good.
Godspeed fellow Heretics!
