Problems get worse with time, exponentially.Posted: October 23, 2014
One of the things we learned as a team is that if we see a problem, a misunderstanding, etc – it needs to be addressed and fixed immediately. The same can be said in many other areas – that technical debt that is piling up, that employee you know you will need to ask to leave the company but are hesitating too, that redesign you are pushing out, etc.
Everything gets worse with time, exponentially. So the energy and expense required to fix the problem also grows exponentially.
Now I know not everything can be fixed immediately; but if it can – it should be.
