A Mess or a Mission

Before every project or meeting we should ask ourselves: do we have a mess or a mission?

A mess is when we aren’t sure what conversation we are having or what question we are answering.

  • Which conversation are we having? Are we on the same page? Are we clear about what mission we’re working on?
  • How many conversations are there actually? Are there multiple missions here?

A mission is what we have when we are clear about what it is that we are here to do.

It’s okay to have multiple missions, we just need to make sure we know which one we’re having a conversation about right now.
