Wisdom Nuggets

Post Mortems are evaluating your team's performance, all the mistakes, all the good things that happened, all the bad things that happened, after anything you’re doing for your business, what you're gonna do moving forward, and what you're not gonna do moving forward. 

Before starting your next project, always review the post mortem, so you don’t make the same mistakes again. There are so many possible mistakes to make, why make the same mistakes twice. 

We have a job to do, and our job is to keep moving. Keep getting smart, keep getting better. How are your ideas contributing to better things?
