Get an Integrated Win
This is the time when I need to insert teamwork of multi-cultural hipsters to show yay, teamwork, right? Don't you all feel like teamwork going on? Here's how we integrate, create that integrated win. We need to identify a solvable problem. Now it's not necessarily about the impact of it. Now we're deferring to ease. Got me? The first one was all impact, but independent impact. Needed to be able to self contain impact. Now, it really is about ease. It really is about ease, but we wanna have an outside champion. We want to begin to broaden the scope. We wanna begin to broaden who's involved in this. The best way I've found to do this, is to find somebody who has a pet project that they've always wanted to get done, and they haven't been able to do it.

You want the first one to feel like an overnight success that you've actually been working on forever. It's like a startup. You're like, "Wow, overnight success." Like, we've been doing this for two years. That's what step four should feel like. It's a quick win. This integrated win, literally needs to be quick. You gotta get in, get out, get it done.
