High Performance Subtraction

Our neighbour has a little 3 year old on a balance bike. He flys up and down the street. His dad said his little son was desperate to get rid of the training wheels.

Subtraction. A best principle for higher performance.

Adding slows us down or keeps us stuck fixing old systems.

Subtracting what is not needed points us to find a better way.

It unbalances the equilibrium and unlocks new performance thinking.

As Steve Jobs said: 'I am as proud of what we don't do as I am of what we do'.

What have you deliberately subtracted recently that gave you an edge?
