You have to look inward and challenge yourself to change your best — to truly go beyond the limits of what you think you’re capable of — every day. —P.J. Fleck
On Today’s Episode:
- Carla and I talk about the need to challenge and change your best
- Your best today represents the minimum expectation tomorrow
- Why Southwest Michigan First annually goes through a “start-stop-continue” with the team
- The one question you can continually ask yourself to mine for greatness
The simple truth is that if we do not challenge and change our best every single day, we become irrelevant. Think of the modern tale of two giants: Netflix, which started as a mail-order DVD service and has evolved to be a streaming powerhouse, and Kodak, which underestimated the rising tide of technology. Netflix continues to challenge and change itself every day. Kodak, despite inventing the very first digital camera, was content with the status quo and eventually had to file for bankruptcy protection in 2012. And this translates to business reality; businesses that continue to seek new opportunities in the ever-changing landscape will fare better than those staying stagnant. Who do you want to be?
Question: If someone was replacing you in your position today, what would they do differently? Why are you waiting to change?
