Stop Trying to Manage the Unmanageable

      • Are you spending your time worried about the wrong things? 

        I remember an article from a couple of years ago where my good friend Shawn Veltman (who’s also co-authoring my next book with me,) shared the story about a company he was working with at the time. The IT department had just released a set new tools that could generate 150 different reports, and the CFO immediately declared them as useless–or as he called them, “Vanity Analytics.” They looked lovely, they were apparently saying something important, but it was very hard to figure out after a few seconds of looking at them what actions could be taken.
