When it ain't broken but it's broken

by Rick Baker
On Feb 14, 2017

Sometimes...

Every action, taken on it's own, seems right and feels right.

Yet, when you add all the actions altogether you do not get the result you desired and things no longer feel right or seem right.

That, in a nutshell, is the it-ain't-broken-but-it's-broken problem.

This it-ain't-broken-but-it's-broken problem exists because:

  • The rules are not clear or not enforced,
  • The goals all are either non-existent or ambiguous, and
  • The consequences for failure are either not clear or not taken seriously.
Don't be distracted or dissuaded by that saying, "If it ain't broken, don't fix it".
 
Sometimes appearances are deceiving. Sometimes actions appear to be done to perfection and yet the desired results do not follow. Sometimes actions are done to perfection and they never had a chance to succeed because they were not the right actions.
 
And, sometimes, whether things are broken or not, we just know it's broken
 
That's the beauty of intuition and the value of gut feel.
