New thinking to save the day

“The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence. It is to act with yesterday’s logic.” Peter Drucker

And most would say that today we are in turbulent times.

Stop and consider… what are you thinking or doing that does not seem to work anymore?

No matter how safe that old way might seem, clinging to it will lead to failure.

So, what new way of looking at things is needed to avoid failure?

Consider a problem, and look at it from different perspectives. What would someone else see and think? A friend? A stranger? A child? A woman? A man? A teenager? Someone with different skills? A movie character?

When your thinking changes, your actions will change.

When your actions change, your results will change.

Note that you must start with changing your thinking.

My best wishes, Paul
