Lean thought for the day

Life improves slowly and goes wrong fast, and only catastrophe is clearly visible
~ Edward Teller

That may seem like a pessimistic comment, but we can also see it as optimistic if for example we look at this next quote:

No endeavor that is worthwhile is simple in prospect; if it is right, it will be simple in retrospect.
~ Edward Teller

Nothing seems easy or obvious until after it is done. A common often heard statement, when people see simple Lean systems functioning is "That's common sense!"
But common sense is far from common when you are working to change the current state.
