Thoughts of the week
There are many routes we take in our life…to work…back home…making decisions…building relationships…in sport….when training…choosing a career path…what’s best for our family etc.
Depending on the context, how often do you take the same route or follow the same process? Do you know why you do so? Are there any alternatives?
All of the best opportunities that we have had with our company have been the result of randomly taking alternative routes at different points in time; people we’ve met, places we’ve been, jobs we’ve done, success we’ve encountered.
There’s not often an explanation as to why positive outcomes have happened this way and there is no guarantee that they won’t sometimes be negative, but we’ve know that if we had kept on the same route without occasionally differing, things would be a lot different.
The one consistent that we always ensure is a primary foundation of hard work, consistency, honesty and perseverance. This can apply to any scenario. You may not see the results straight away, or as soon as you want to, but keep patient with the end goal in mind.
Start right now no matter where you are, what you’re doing, time of day. Take an alternative route and see what happens…
