Picking your Steed.
The Kentucky Derby is a strong testament to the statement, “Not all horses are made equal.” Differences in breed, build, and temperament all play a factor in determining if you’re on the 1st horse across the finish line, or the last. Today, we’re going to view your next project management software upgrade in this fashion. By doing so, you might pick the stallion that get’s you across the finish line instead of the donkey that keeps you in last place. Remember, crossing that finish line comes with some serious perks!
Sure, the glory is nice, but what about the financial freedom, a meaningful existence, and a legacy that reaches far down the branches of your family tree! You won’t do that with a donkey for a horse, and it’s unlikely you’ll do that with a project management software that’s unable to cross the finish line.
There are tons of options for us out there. In the current climate of the digital age, more are bound to surface throughout the years. Picking the right thoroughbred with winning features will always be the most crucial starting point for a winning trophy horse.
Breaking your Bronco.
Although I’ve never ridden a horse, I can imagine the importance of the “breaking” process. I’m sure it’d be difficult, almost impossible to get anywhere successfully if your bronco is bucking you off every few minutes.
“Breaking your horse” in THIS sense will translate to the learning curve you’ll experience with your new project management software.
Before planes, trains, and automobiles, horses were the primary means of transportation throughout the known world and often unknown world. Taming your steed was essential in successfully going from A to B, ultimately ensuring your survival in those times.
Project Management Tools are their own individuals, as is a thoroughbred racehorse. Not only do they look different, but they differ in how well you, the “jockey”, synchronizes with them. There’s a rhythm between both out there on the racetrack, and there’s similar rhythm between you and your catalyst of daily productivity. “Breaking” that bronco determines how quick you can establish a synchronous flow together, be productive, and glide towards the finish line.
Choosing the right race for your horse.
Again, “Not all horses are made equal.” Software developers, if they’re smart, will gravitate toward certain macro-industries, like sales or marketing, and develop around their needs. This allows for an even more loyal clientele pool. On the downside of the trend, other industries are unable to “clique” as well with certain platforms because of this. That’s okay. It opens doors for other companies to come into the empty space and cater to those needs specifically. At the beginning of your “jockey career”, it’s unlikely you’ll compete in the grandest races around. It’s a process like anything else. Just make sure you have a racehorse that can handle the needs of the race you’re in! Once you build a strong relationship, you’ll both grow and evolve together, and hopefully, cross that finish line.
