Work gave you lemons and you made lemonade1 min read

You’ve built your product, your team and the processes to get things done. You’ve made the best of what you got.

Finding workarounds and creative solutions are what got you this far, after all.

Guess what, though? Those very same workarounds and solutions have tangled you in inefficiencies. 

But don’t worry, it’s all part of the process.

As teams grow, legacy problems grow with them and start bogging you down. Until you address them.

McKinsey has a tried and tested method for helping you get rid of your baggage and get to your ‘Sunny state’.

Take Adobe, who achieved its ‘Sunny state’ by moving Photoshop from cardboard boxes to a monthly digital subscription.

Startups are raising the bar with aggressive learning.

They’re delivering things better, cheaper and faster than we’ve ever seen.

In less than 20 years, SpaceX has built, tested, failed to launch and successfully launched astronauts into space. They’ve also reduced the cost of sending one kilogram of payload into space from NASA’s best of $54,500 to just $2,720.

That’s a reduction of $51,780! ?

Boeing, with more funding and more experience, is still trying (and failing) to catch up to SpaceX.

You also probably have the skills and resources available to make the impossible happen. Are you working to make your lemonade better?
