Check If Your Ongoing Project Team Is Living As Prisoners Of Fear

There is a very interesting story that I read online recently. When an abandoned fort that was used as a prison was being stripped by a group of contracted laborers, they discovered a very amazing fact. When this team was dismantling this jail if was found that huge sized powerful locks and strong/ heavy doors were used along with solid iron bars covering the windows. Surprising fact that came out was that the walls were not the real walls. Those were constructed with only clay and paper but the finishing done on them with paints etc was so realistic that those appeared like iron walls. If one had wanted to escape away, walls would have easily broken with least of the efforts and all the prisoners would have escaped easily. Nobody ever tried because not a single person thought about it.

Does that not happen in a project. The teams working on various assignments of an ongoing project. We all become prisoners of our fears of exploring new possibilities because we have to follow predefined processes and procedures. At some moment of time someone needs to dare and try breaking the strong looking weak walls around so as to get some real fresh air that pumps up additional photons of energy.
