The longer someone hesitates over the question, the more you know they're trying to get their answer "right," regardless of the math logic.
We put a lot of churn into trying to get things perfect / right /100%. It's just not possible. It makes more sense to put that extra energy into things we can control /influence /fix / perfect.
Which is better?
- Getting my kid to eat broccoli or just finding ways to have him enjoy more vegetables in general?
- Ensuring I run to every grocery store to find the lowest prices on all my shopping or one store with the best general prices?
- Having my team do everything with my clearance or just picking the biggest risk items (yes, they're all risky...)?
