We all screw things up every now and then. We might try really hard with a project but ultimately our results kinda suck. Here is a frank and funny one liner to ask yourself and your team after a business related misfire.
“Are we polishing horse manure?” –it’s never going to shine no matter how hard you polish it! Translation – stop polishing!
Another way of describing a project that in reality is a failure…
“Sometimes, you gotta call the baby ugly.” There is one exception with use of this one-liner… any time there is a real baby involved!
In business, sometimes you have to have a sense of humor, learn from your mistakes and move on.
