Here is a quote from management thinker Peter Drucker that I have been thinking about:
“If it were a decision today to start something you are already in (to enter a business, to hire a person, to institute a policy, to launch a project, etc.), would you? If not, then why do you persist?”// Peter F. Drucker
It’s a great question, and it asks us to reflect. It makes us consider how we might do things differently. What got us here won’t get us there. The conditions under which we entered a business, position, project etc, will be different to the conditions now. Therefore we need to adjust and adapt our approach.
So how does your approach need to change? And why would you persist with something, that may not be working for you?
