“If only” (you’d embrace the constraints)

“If only I had one more employee…”

“If only I had a bigger budget…”

“If only I had the newest tool…”

The “if only” plea is often evidence of problems much larger than what the proposed solution would seem to address. Rarely is “if only” an ultimatum between success and failure as some make it out to be.

Near as I can tell there are two options:

  1. Hide behind the excuse that circumstances will only improve “if only” the request is granted, or
  2. Embrace the constraints, get creative, and craft a solution.
