There is an English saying:
Stepping Over A Stack Of $100 Bills To Pick Up A Penny
We can’t spend €1,000 on an off-the-shelf piece of software, but we can spend €10,000 on further customizing our own ERP system, which doesn’t work and causes more problems than it solves.
We can spend countless hours in useless meetings and then have a meeting to discuss why everything is over budget and behind schedule.
Moral of the story?
Sometimes you literally step over a pile of money lying around because you want to stay with the way you work.
Sometimes it’s better not to figure everything out yourself.
There are countless smart apps and solutions on the shelf.
Putting something together yourself is not always better.
