What you have learned is that the capacity of the plant is equal to the capacity of its bottlenecks

― ‘Jonah’ – Eliyahu M. Goldratt, The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement

While we have our goals, our targets, and our KPIs, we can plan all we want and end up changing, updating, and adjusting our aim, or amending the results we want to hit.

…for better or for worse.

We begin our preparation or already started running, and based on the feedback noticed or received from others, we actually learn new things as well as what not to do…and so we recalibrate.

…and refocus.

We’re not the same people we were when we started: we’ve experimented, we’ve gotten better, and we’ve risen to new standards, and heck…we’re curious for new outcomes, new directions, and want to experience new things.

So we’re recalibrating…continuously, day-in-day-out, in our ongoing journey for improvement.

We’re adjusting, in hopes of finding a better way; in hopes of igniting a new spark; in hopes of a better outcome.

This is a given, and we constantly do this – heck, we need to water those seeds we’ve been planting, and they’ve been growing in so many different ways, it’s simply expected.

Recalibrate, recalibrate, recalibrate.
