Doing things differently and focusing attention can lead to big results. Learning new skills is vitally important and can potentially save years of time vs. doing something the old way. This assumes the new (proper) way you learned is better than the old way.
Here is a simple example. I have always been interested in becoming flexible. I watched a Martial Arts documentary where this master was hoping from one pole to the other on one leg and then doing a pistol (one leg squat with his other leg straight out like a front kick.) Now when I watched this, I could not do this and figured that I would blow my knee out trying it. What really got me discouraged (encouraged) was this man was 76 years old. For me, my flexibility routine has always been trumped by stiffness because of my old days of weight lifting.
The point of this has since changed when I uncovered a flexibility technique known as tension-flexibility. Basically, your muscles are already long enough to stretch but are not relaxed and protected while doing it. This simple technique of flexing your leg muscles while you stretch will yield a 30-50% improvement in your first session.
Why are you telling us this? Better techniques / technologies exist for us to deliver better results to all stakeholders including citizens, team members and our partners. The interesting part of this is that the techniques and solutions for better performance already exist, it is just a matter of discovery. The tension-flexibility method discussed above has been used by Russian special forces for decades. It is not new but simply new to me. That is the whole point of the story.
