Look, technical debt is all in the mind. Likewise the criticality of workflow. If you've got half a clue you could set fire to everything physical and digital that defines your business, and start again from scratch tomorrow. Businesses that grip on to this tightly, shivering in fear at change that might have to pry them for just a moment from everything they hold scared - these are the businesses you really don't want to be around. The sheer inflexibility, rigidity, and desperate need for status quo are, in and of themselves, the very poisons that will eat these places from the inside out, long before any competition or external force will. Their want to remain immutable in a world that is nothing but chaos and entropy will be their eventual, predictable downfall. Disrupt some shit. Have some fun. "Nothing is set in stone, and even then stone can be broken".
