Human nature is such that we’re not willing to change things until they’re too painful. I see it in business all the time. Everyone is feeling stressed, productivity is down, and customers are unhappy. Yet, the company has plenty of money, so they keep working in a sub-optimal way.

What would you like to see different in your world? There’s a good chance you’re evaluating it and labelling it as bad or wrong. Too often, though, these evaluations will keep you stuck with what you have.

Instead of saying something is bad, try asking, “how did we get here?” or, “what has us staying with this sub-optimal way of doing things?”

You might find the golden nugget that will lead you to better things.

You’ve got this.
