Are You Insane?

What is insanity?  What does that have to do with project management software tools?  According to dictionary.com, one of the definitions of insanity is "extreme folly; senselessness; foolhardiness."  A definition that I like better is "doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results."  This has been misattributed to Benjamin Franklin, and it seems like no one knows exactly who said it.

Don't we do that - doing the same thing over and over?  What are you doing over and over and expecting a different result?  Or what new result do you need to achieve - and thus what do you need to do differently to achieve it?

Are you using the same old tools for project management and still fighting fires due to late or a lack of information?  Are there processes that are broken?

What can you change today to achieve a different result?
