The Way Things Go Now

You’re in charge now. Things go the way you want them to go.

Do you know the way you want them to go?

And what is that based on, the way you want things to go? The way the experts say they should go? The way you made them go before, when you were in charge somewhere else? The way your mentor made them go? You don’t have to say, but you’ll be better off if you know why you want things to go the way you want them to go.

Of course, there is always the option to keep them going the way they’re going now, here. Just because you’re in charge and can change the way things go doesn’t mean you should. Some things are going just fine. Good leaders will recognize those things and leave them alone.

Making things go the way you want them to go is costly. But you’re in charge; you have capital to spend. Spend it wisely.
