💬 More Lessov, Less Morov

Replied to More Lessov, Less Morov (cbarclay.global2.vic.edu.au)

I have previously talked about with my staff, as well as at conferences I have presented at, the 3 Russian Brothers and their Cousin. Their names being:

  • Morov. (What do you need to do more of?).
  • Lessov. (What do you need to do less of?)
  • Ridov. (What do you need to get rid of?)
  • Tossin. (What can you toss in?)

From here on in I think I will disown Tossin as we need to part ways, indefinitely. Ridov can hang around. Lessov too. And as for Morov… I’ll only be conversing with him after I have held deep and meaningfuls with his two brothers.

Here’s to doing better instead of more.

Interesting reflection Corrie. I concur in regards to patience and I only have two.

Your ‘Russian brothers’ reminds me in part of a post by Tom Barrett on innovation compression, where you need to take something away in order to add something in:

We need to avoid innovation compression by clearing the way, closing existing programmes and providing people the resources they need to make things work.

I sometimes wonder about those brothers and how much sway I have over them? As Harper Lee once wrote:

You can choose your friends but you sho’ can’t choose your family, an’ they’re still kin to you no matter whether you acknowledge ’em or not, and it makes you look right silly when you don’t.
