There have been a few dramatic periods in my life when Subject Matter Experts, that happened to be examples on survival, instructed me:
“Don’t rush in.”
Certainly lessons learned as a Firefighter in Colorado still haunt my dreams (and, those adventures often represent great metaphors for business). But, when you stop and think about those words their broad application are too numerous to even bother expounding over. However, you can come up with all manner of imagery in terms of the furious words: fire fight.
War, fires, business.
And, better yet, how to avoid them.
Just pause and come up with your own opportunities not to become an example of negative selection (this phrase is not, necessarily, Darwinian in principle – just look it up).
