Mistake 2: Do nothing when there is no funding support

Mistake 3: Drive "EA governance and standards" as a goal instead of means to achieve business goals. 

Mistake 4: Too focused on technology, Know or care little about business

Mistake 5: Live in EA ivory tower, ignore and disconnect from the other talents

Mistake 7: Live in out-dated architecture and technology, lack of passion for innovation
