I’m here at the UCLA Business School where they’re teaching young people how to relentlessly make things better.
I love the drive for improvement, but remember: if you’re never satisfied with what your people deliver, it can be very dispiriting for them.
So, here’s the play: let it go.
The next time you receive something, (it could be a report or a product, whatever), if it’s good enough, just accept it the way it is. (Even if you see a way to make it better.)
Celebrate with your people and move on.
I’m David Marquet. That’s your Leadership Nudge.
