Today’s post compiles five ideas to catalyze you to think about the same things, differently. It is time for action. Yes, sail into uncharted waters so what is uncomfortable and unfamiliar today becomes your professional environment moving forward. Get to where you really need to go, together, one millimeter at a time.
These five themes surface constantly as I research and speak with motivated colleagues and readers like you.
- You are rethinking your professional why and your professional what.
- Is fulfilling someone else’s ideas of what your KPIs should be still professionally fulfilling for you? Is it enough? Or are there new opportunities awaiting you and it is time to seek these out?
- Do you wait for new ideas to be handed off to you to manage? Or are you focusing on becoming more comfortable generating innovations, as well?
- Are you risk-averse or not? Your answer reflects whether you like to play it safe and status quo or not.
I remain purposely focused on catalyzing your professional innovation, one millimeter at a time. Often, the disparity I see perpetuated across legacy departmental value silos creates the greatest barriers to achieving success together. The greatest professional distance you need to traverse is one millimeter long, but that distance generates profound professional pause. It is time to move one millimeter forward from what is holding you back, together, with me. Let’s get going!
