An ability to be dynamic, to pivot, to deal with what the day brings you is essential in fast-paced, creative work environments. There is absolutely a place for being true to your vision, sticking to pillars and plowing forward. An unwillingness to bend though, to be obstinate vs crafting solutions can create unnecessary pain points for you and your team. Ask yourself if the issue you are facing amounts to a mountain you are willing to die on? The art of knowing how to be flexible, of introspection, of choosing your battles and managing unexpected circumstance is vital not only to your sanity, but ultimately to successfully crossing your project’s finish line.
