Slay A Sacred Cow
#39 There is a saying that Frederick the Great (1712-1786) lost the Battle of Jena (1806) meaning that for twenty years after his death, the army perpetuated his successful organization instead of adapting to meet the changes in the art of war. Many rules outlive the purpose for which they were intended. What rule, policy, or way of thinking has been successful for you in the past but may be limiting you now? What can you eliminate? What sacred cow can you slay?
