In some industries, delays can be crushing to what you produce.
If the builder doesn’t get the materials in time, the job won’t be complete for the homeowner on schedule.
If the server drops the meal on the way out to the table, the patrons will have to wait to eat.
But in other industries, delays can be used for growth.
The web designer that’s waiting for one client to respond can work on a project for another client, or brush up on what’s new in the industry.
The team that’s waiting out a rain delay can watch some film on the first part of the game.
Delays don’t always have to be a problem if we know how to shift into the positive.
