Seek Change

“Some people read business books looking for confirmation. I read them in search of disquiet. Confirmation is cheap, easy and ineffective. Restlessness and the scientific method, on the other hand, create a culture of testing and inquiry that can’t help but push you forward.”

Seth Godin

Growth is only brought about through change.  Change is almost always brought about through discontentment with the status quo.  I’ve met a lot of authors, speakers, coaches and business professionals and I can safely say that the best among them are constantly striving for improvement and development.  “Positive Dissatisfaction” is a phrase an old mentor of mine used to use regularly.

Yes, acknowledging and celebrating victory is a good thing.  It’s only one half of the equation though, and if you focus on it exclusively, you’ll quickly find yourself falling from grace and being outpaced by the competition.

summitWhat is it about your current siuation you’d like to see improved?  What can you change to make your offering stronger, more relevent or more refined than the competition?

Stop to enjoy the view when you can, but understand the mountain has many more peaks to summit.
