“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
When you set out on a journey with your OSS, is the destination at the forefront of your thoughts? What are the guiding coordinates that you’re aiming for?
Every boat has its leaks. Every product has its defects. Do you spend so much of your journey focussing on repairing the inconsequential leaks that you forget to navigate towards the destination?
Sure, fix the leaks that will sink the boat. But don’t lose sight of the destination or forget to steer your OSS towards the port of call.
