Stop tinkering, start changing

After a period of reflection, it is good advice to stop tinkering, start changing, and move forward with desired endeavours.

Unfortunately, it is easy to get lost in the planning stage of a project, then ‘dance around the edges’ of the action plan rather than implement proposed steps.

Stop tinkering, start changing’ is a mantra we could adopt when looking to amend habits we have identified as working against us.

A decisive intervention will create a greater splash than a cautious dipping of the toes in the pool of development. And once we have taken this initial move, we may want to continue in this new direction.

Or not. To join the conversation on the issue of ‘Stop tinkering, start changing’, please leave a comment below.
