Fresh Friday Quote: Ed Catmull

Each Friday I will share a quote I appreciate. It might be long or short. It might be funny or thought provoking.


“This is the Nature of Management. Decisions are made, usually for good reasons, which turn into other decisions. So when problems arise – and they always do – disentangling them is not as simple as correcting the original error. Often, fining a solution is a multi-step endeavor. There is the problem you know you are trying to solve – think of that as an oak tree – and then there are all the other problems – think of these as saplings – that sprouted from the acorns that fell around it. And these problems remain after you cut the oak tree down.”

– Ed Catmull, Creativity, Inc.
