Do Something Different

Insanity is defined by doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

This is typical of people who don’t analyze their mistakes or even accept feedback.
There is a point in our lives when things just don’t work out and we find ourselves failing in our projects, business and relationships.

If you can’t figure out why you are failing and you don’t understand why you keep getting the same results.

I urge you to try to do something different.

I urge you to make a change.

It doesn’t even have to be a big change.

Just do one thing different like you have never done before -add one new behavior to your life and watch it enlarge your perception.

By adapting a new way of being, acting, thinking, you will eventually break through the “failure” phase.

When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal, not your decision to get there. ~ Unk.

    The scary thing is that there are some that don’t even realize that they are failing. They just keep going on as they have been and can’t figure out why it’s taking them so long to get where they want to be.

    I enjoyed your post which is at the core of nailing the work life merge. We are brought to our knees even in the littlest ways when we repeat the same mistakes. I’m enjoying one of those fabulous journey’s right now! One item so important to mention is that while we need to nail that discipline to not “repeat” …we’ve got to forgive ourselves and give ourselves permission to be human… until next time…
