Surgery now is better than crippled later.


So the foot is getting better but I am hobbled. What used to be easy is now hard.  This got me thinking about work.  I had a foot pain but I could walk.  It was never going to get better though.  So I had surgery. Now I can’t walk at all BUT in the long run I will get better.
Business is like this. There are parts of your business, campaigns or employees who hurt your business and are never going to get better.  Sometimes you have to “operate” on them to get them better.  A short term loss now is better than carrying around a pain later.  Just get it done.  You’ll be better in the long run.
