I heard author Henry Cloud recently say, “We don’t need new ways to fail. The old ways are working just fine.”
Ouch! He’s talking about my habits — those patterns of behavior that get created, then cultivated, and become hard to break.
Maybe you can identify with that. Over time, you find yourself drifting back to the same places or people. Perhaps it’s a recurring thought that keeps dogging you or causing you to doubt. The old ways of failing are working just fine.
What do you need?
A new way! A new way of thinking or doing. A new way of organizing or delegating. A new way of talking, to yourself and others.
If the old ways are working just fine and you don’t like the results, don’t expect to get different results without changing.
