saving in this world
We take for granted that we have enough. Until we realise we don't. And that's how we started with barely a handful of personnel, and no headquarters, which we had to reclaim by hostile takeover.
Henceforth, every single resource used in this business, from small to huge, is practically hard earned with repetition of planning, execution, and improvement, regardless of expendables, sites, and portables.
On this world map, there are no sponsors and bosses, only constrained others to barter with, for. We have to slowly travel from place to place, whilst we tortoise through building forth one amenity after another facility, every vehicle insufficient for ever-changing networks across the lands.
Amidst all this, people remain the most important capital. You raise them to top expertise for your formidable enterprise, to most readily lose them and be painfully set back before the beginning.
And this reflection is thoughtfully inspired by study-play of the Phoenix Project (not the IT, but the strategy and turn tactics).
