Love these thoughts Max! This one especially and the ability to be reactive vs. proactive. I was dinged for this a while back and have been able to start thinking more about "here's a problem I'm reacting to, how do I prevent it in the future?"

From there it's a prioritization and impact analysis to see how feasible a solution would be, but man, it's been a major unlock to quelling the chaos.
