Once The Decision Is Made, Get Behind It

Success can come in many different forms, which makes success hard to achieve. There isn't a magic set of steps if you follow them you will succeed. It is why people will often try to replicate the acts of those who are successful but find it a harder road than expected.

Because there are so many paths to success teams can easily find themselves debating about what is the right path they should be on. Each person has different experiences, strengths and knowledge that make different methods more or less appealing. The larger the team the more opinions. The more opinions the more room for debate about which one is right.

I believe success has far less to do with finding the right method and far more to do with everyone on the team buying into the selected method. If you can't support the decision then you are actually hurting your organizations chance of success. You are allowed to disagree and debate with others, but if a decision is made that you don't agree with you still need to support it. Finding success is hard enough, I'm always amazed at how many battles are fought internally that just makes success that much more elusive. Sometimes it isn't about coming up with the best idea, it is about getting behind whatever idea is chosen and doing whatever is in your power to make it a reality.
