Let the fly out the window

Sometimes you’ll have a situation where a star in your company starts causing trouble.

She will be like a fly buzzing around your room, banging into the walls, irritating you and hurting itself.

You’ll have three choices for dealing with the fly:

  1. Let it buzz itself to death, irritating you and everyone else in the room.
  2. Kill it.
  3. Open the window and let it fly away.

The third option is always the best option. Make it easy for your star to leave your company.

Open the window. Make it easy for her to leave with dignity, on her own terms.

Just like with a fly, you can’t tell a star what to do.

Let her choose her own way out.

Open the window.
