“Rest when you’re weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work.”
– Ralph Marston
I was enjoying listening to the classic rock band, The Doors last night. The is a great song named “I’ve been down so long” … The famous lyric from the song is; “Well, I’ve been down so very damn long that it looks like up to me”. It’s a great example of literary wordplay.
As I was listening to the song, I was struck by the idea that when times are tough it’s easy to become overly narrow in your focus. We have a saying at Tahzoo which is “Never Lose Alone”. When things are difficult sometimes it’s hard to ask for help. Keep in mind that you work with Smart and Happy people… we are a team, not a collection of individuals.
It’s an exciting time for Tahzoo, we have lots of big projects kicking off and some of which are groundbreaking. That means we are going to have challenges, differences of opinions, and a number of new people that are joining Tahzoo. It’s up to all of us to make sure we are communicating effectively and working as a team to resolve issues. In many ways, this is project management 101 but a truly great team doesn’t just have good systems and processes, they communicate effectively.
So if you find yourself having a challenging time over the next few months, don’t hesitate to be vocal and reach out for support and guidance. Another Tahzoo saying “Escalate Early and Often”. Lastly, there is nothing more important to me than ensuring that we have satisfied clients, so if you’re challenged and want some advice my door is always open.
Let’s go be great!
