“As the same old record plays the same old song,
habits give us the habitual outcome.” #bgdtcoaching.
It is well known that to get a different result we need to play a new tune instead of the same old record. We all have the capacity to expand ourselves beyond the limits of our experience right now.
Enhancing our potential could be a case of noting our weaknesses and undertaking a specific programme of development to improve our skills. With the almost endless opportunities available to most of us nowadays, such an investment of time and effort is not impossible to us.
That said, we can often hear folk repeat the same old record regarding a lack of ………………………………………. (fill in the blank according to the excuse of the moment, be it a weak economy, limited time for personal and professional development, an inability to stick to a learning schedule, etc.).
The same old record gets aired so often, also as justification at national and international levels, that it is little wonder inertia, procrastination and a sense of helplessness trickles down to individuals.
Same old record or not if we choose to change the music to which we move.
