There is a simple graph that best describes the experience of trying to make a bigger difference inside an organization.
On the X axis, your desk. On the Y axis, your head.
The graph shows an elegant, consistent motion between the two:
Head: Desk. Head: Desk.
Life at the edge of your company can get pretty ugly. Fugly, even.
I often refer to the bruises and muscle building produced in the act of disorganizing.
It is a physical endeavour.
It can also give you monumental headaches. The type you get from a hangover (the victory!); or a migraine (when a storm is brewing); or from banging your head against the desk (We persevere.)
No matter the pain, consider the gain. Disorganizers keep going.
