How to shift from survival mode to growth mode

Jay Goltz’ article in The New York Times is spot on: “[Einstein] said that the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Too often, I think that’s really the definition of small business. Whether it is continuing to hire the wrong people because of a bad hiring protocol, sticking with the same marketing plan even though it isn’t working or thinking we are going to become more profitable by underpricing our competition, many business owners stick to what they have gotten comfortable doing and hope it will start producing better results. Why?”

  1. yeah most people don’t have 20 years of experience. They have one year of experience repeated 20 times. I fail to understand why people don’t keep a log book and do some retrospective thinking


  2. The Einstein’s quote is spot on:we can’t expect different different result if we continue to do the same job . Its rare to find people switching stable government job for a fast growing but dynamic job in IT domain. There is a huge gap between job loyalty and job satisfaction. Now, the emerging opportunities offer tremendous opportunity for growth and development.The new generation should be willing to experiment and not just walk across the same path.
