As a builder, you are driven to move the project forward. Solve the problem, check it off the list, and move on to the next one. But, the notion that “It’s better to do something than nothing at all” depends on knowing how much to do and when to do it. Water will seek to balance itself over time, but it may not necessarily find its own level due to barriers. As a leader, remove the barriers hindering the path to the best solution. When you choose to do nothing you are, in fact, doing something. Whether you can make the call to act or to let a situation play out with strategic adjustments over time, sometimes the best solution comes when you let water seek its own level.
