My guru at home gave a new term for reconstruction.
"Wreck it and build it again."
The vast majority of the work that we do can be reconstructed, remodelled, rebuild.
While the tearing process can be painful and exceedingly laborious, it could also be a source of relief (cathartic to some) and release from the burden of perfectionism.
Our most prized goods, services, products, programs are held up high and with finality, judged as best. Where in fact, in other spaces, they wreck their best products so see if it can withstand several iterations for different purposes.
There is nothing wrong with valuing great assets, but if it becomes the 'sacred cow' that nobody wanted to touch for fear of reprisal, retribution, or negative impact, then there is the problem. Either it is perception issue or an accountability one.
The joy of rebuilding is 100x better than the stagnant trophy gathering dust in the library.
"Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It's the courage that counts" -Churchill said that.
