Unfortunately, there’s no silver bullet to creating lasting change…just small actions adding up over time.
I found this flint on the beach, together with it’s companion – a small, hard piece of stone that fit perfectly into the hole. Little by little, tide by tide, grinding away a perfectly smooth and round tunnel. With light at the end of it.
Silver bullets are so tempting. Get in shape in 2 weeks! Reinvent your business in 10 days! Make a million dollars in a month!*
The truth is less sexy, though Aristotle had a go:
“You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is not a singular act but a habit.’
Some questions might be:
- what are you choosing to do?
- what might increase your awareness of other options?
- now what are you choosing to do?
- what will the value be?
- how committed are you?
- how can you make it stick?
Then you are on the way to making lasting changes.
*Yes, these are real examples.
