As humorous and mad this incident maybe we should pause and reflect on the learnings and implications of following blindly what we perceive to be the right route.
How often is a plan followed and not outwardly questioned or concerns raised?
How pre-occupied are you in the detail that you loose sight of the final objective?
Regulatory strategy, corporate strategy, or even life goals, can follow a similar trajectory if not frequently checked and reappraised. Have you a clear understanding of the destination, outcome, time and cost?
