Organize a new group and see how quickly the temptation to complicate matters starts to surface.
Keeping things simple and action-oriented is difficult and yet if that orientation is not present from the start, it may be too late. Territory may already have been seized and boundaries drawn.
One salvation may be found in keeping the organization's structure in loose and revisable draft until actions suggests its shape.
Minor delays can help. You can later build sidewalks where the paths were made.
