Imagine you complete a project.
Now think of every decision you made and action you took during the project.
Think of it as a ‘string of pearls’ – what actually happened.
Then think of all possible combinations that could have happened.
Like – all possible permutations of that string of pearls.
Imagine the incurred lead time for each possible combination.
Smarter actions; better choices all favor shorter overall lead times.
That’s our job – to strive for smarter actions and better choices – pushing towards shorter and shorter lead time.
That’s like pushing your luck – in the right direction.
(If you do not push it in the right direction – upwards – it will gravitate naturally in the other direction – downwards)
