What should we do instead?

  1. Measure where you really are.
  2. Measure what you actually need.
  3. Measure what you actually have.
  1. Escape hysterical language and rationalizations with measures of the real world.
  2. Feel good by LISTING actual resources; actual prior achievements; and actual progress.
  3. Feel less pressured by defining needs according to the smallest next step.
