Another tree


When you keep doing what you’ve always done and keep getting the same, erm, suboptimal results, it’s not insanity that makes you do it, it’s habit, it’s looking down whilst following your own footsteps around and around the same old tree. When there is one way you know to do a thing, even if it doesn’t work as well as you’d like, you’ll probably keep on doing it as long as it kinda sorta mostly works. 

Fear keeps us here. Fear that the new way will be as bad or worse than the old way, and we’ll have to go through a heap of pain before we find out.

It’s a choice. The methods and results you know, or the potential for upside in what you don’t know.

It’s a choice. Continued, bankable, suboptimal results, or a walk towards another tree that might be on the path.

Skippy strategy: Try another tree.
