Slow Down, You’re Movin’ Too Fast
January 18, 2010
In small business IT, things can happen too fast. While speed can be a good thing in some circumstances, when something has gone wrong, well?
Slow down a bit!
A server has crashed, or maybe e-mail is not working, whatever it is, there is a tendency to panic, a tendency to rush around. This problem can be exacerbated when senior execs are breathing down neck of their IT staff as they try and fix the problem.
But rushing around may not be the best option. A 5 minute bandage job may fix the problem, at least temporarily.
But sometimes taking the extra time to review, to dig a little deeper, and then to fix it permanently the first time, is the better way to go.
