The power in a meaningful company doing work that matters is in the people’s will to sustain the pursuit of being better. Nobody can take that away from you besides you.

We’re all familiar with the phrase, “What got us here won’t get us there.”
But few of us are aware of how many areas of our work this really applies to.
We typically associate it with mindset or strategy related topics. It goes further:
What your day looks like got you here, but won’t get you there. We can choose to continue our current course by maintaining our current schedule or we can change course by changing where our energy goes. What we see today is a representation of our focus, energy and heart. Are these results acceptable to you?
Your manner got you here, but won’t get you there. We can choose to be too soft, too hard, too understanding, too cold, push-over or hard-ass. We’re manifesting the results of our manner every day. Are these results acceptable to you?
Your mission got you here, but won’t get you there. We can chart a course between the size of your mission and the fervor with which you pursuit it. Those on your team who don’t believe it will not maintain pace with your leading advocates. This is the pace you have. Is it acceptable to you?
All areas of your meaningful pursuit are affected by the phrase at the top of this post. Even the decision to read these short mission-focused blog posts instead of perusing Instagram was a choice.
Are the results of your choices acceptable to you?
