Thank you, Deb! As a "horseman 4b" (adjacent to failure), I'd offer solution-centric thinking. Fixating on building a specific solution to a problem has, in my experience, been a killer of scrappiness (and success). Learning from failures can mean learning that a different solution better solves the problem.

Amazing post. Your callout of process especially resonates with me. I can recall many instances where the team defers to an old process rather than thinking through whether the process still makes sense. Any advice on overcoming this? Does it just require constant vigilance and push-back when it occurs?
