80 percent in 2 minutes

“You can often get 80% of the way there in two minutes…”

A mentor recently shared this with me and I’ve seen it in action more than once in the last few weeks as groups I’ve been a part of, and observed, choose to get started instead of talking about it.

Simply taking two minutes to write a draft statement, diagram a timeline or sketch a design will often get you 80% of the way there and provide a great starting point.

I have seen so many groups flounder because they lack concrete options to evaluate, discuss or debate. It might only take two minutes to get you most of the way there!

How have you seen this in action?
