I was shocked to see someone had driven right across this corner.
Look at the damage they’ve left behind.
And what if someone had been standing there?!
Sometimes it can be smart to take a shortcut. If you’re driving somewhere, it can shave a lot of time off your trip.
But it’s not the same as cutting corners. That can be dangerous.
It’s the same at work.
Cutting corners means sacrificing things along the way. It might get you there faster, but at what cost and at whose expense?
Shortcuts are about finding faster, better ways of doing things. Better for you, your co-workers and the organisation..
So the next time you want to get somewhere faster, make sure it’s better too.
It’s about finding shortcuts. Not cutting corners.
