In Business (and in LIFE) I believe the only thing to be constant is change. I yearn for change. I can’t stand to stay still. I think the reason I have been successful in Business for so long is that I seek and embrace change.
Even if something is working ‘just fine’ I adjust, tweak and tinker to see if I can get it to work better. Never believing that something is perfect just the way it is.
Always looking for a ‘BETTER WAY’.
I’m sorry if I offend anyone but you cannot expect to sit back and keep doing what you are doing and expect things to improve. I once read somewhere “the definition of insanity is doing the SAME thing over and over again and expecting a DIFFERENT result” HOW TRUE ARE THESE WORDS.
So WHY is it that many of us HATE change?
Dr Wyatt Woodsmall, a behavioral specialist lists 4 reasons NOT to change.
- Chance to: I don’t have time, I don’t get the opportunity… etc.
- Want to: I’m comfortable as I am, I couldn’t be bothered… etc
- How to: I don’t know how, I don’t know where to begin… etc
- Able to: There’s no way I can do that, I’m not capable of …etc
Are you using these EXCUSES?
I believe that if you continue to keep doing the same thing and not grow and change, that you are actually going backwards. So much so, that before you know it, your doors will close on your dream.
So if you don’t normally EMBRACE CHANGE and look for ways to improve, get off your proverbial and learn something, try something, CHANGE something and test the results (then do it AGAIN) and watch as your world slowly but surely improves.
