In the history of performance, one of the worst ideas is that we should strive for a consensus.
We don’t need to agree. We need to be united. Endlessly seeking agreement is a losing proposition.
Requiring universal agreement stalls progress. Alignment is the ideal.
By the time you agree with each other, you have so watered down what you’re committed to, that’s it not worth pursuing.
Agreement is important for HOW you are going to do something. But is terrible when committing to WHAT you are going to do.
