Good Tuesday Morning D13!
“If you’re not getting the results you want, change what you’re doing.” –Adam Robinson
You’d think that would be obvious.
You would think people would pivot, or they would change, but they don’t.
They do more of the same.
They double down on what they’ve already done.
They try harder.
They look for reasons as to why the results aren’t what they want.
They try to justify so they can keep doing more of the same.
They make excuses 🙁
They keep doing the same thing expecting different results.
Ok, so how do you change what you’re doing?
A great starting point is to take a moment to call someone for outside perspective. As they look at the issue, since they are not attached to it, they can help you see the solution easier.
Then you have to listen, and try something different!
Try doing the opposite of what you have been doing.
Go the other way completely!
If you’ve been interviewing a few people, start interviewing a ton!
If you’ve been working 45 hours a week, start working 60.
If you’ve been working 60 hours a week, try working 45
Of course this new direction might not work either. And In that case change again, and again, AND AGAIN.
Embrace change and learn to love being uncomfortable 🙂
P.S. I write about things I struggle with, or have struggled through, not things I’ve mastered or things I’m immune to.
