Animals rely on their instincts. They are often more connected than we are. They understand the laws of nature and they keep it simple.
Us humans, on the other hand, have learned to think. Our brains have evolved. Yes, we still have instincts but we have other factors at play now.
Perhaps that's why we're often confused.
Like I am right now.
I'm at a transition point in my career. It's time to evolve. It's time to grow. It's time to bring the business and myself to the next level.
But my brain is getting in the way.
What if things don't work out? What if the team does not like the final decision? What if cashflow gets affected? What if I can't deliver on my promises? What if it affects my time with my family?
Why does the brain always go to the negative? Perhaps it's time to flip some of these questions around...
What if things work out better than anticipated? What if the team is excited about the decision and future projects? What if cashflow gets better? What if I overdeliver? What if I have more time with my family?
Most importantly, what if I can have a greater impact and help more people?
But then I get stuck in the how... How do I get from here to there? The brain is slowing me down again. Or is it helping?
Strategy is important. Action is more important. How do I come up with the right strategy and take action right away? Who do I need help from? Who needs to do what? Who can step up on the team? Who are we missing from the team?
One thing I know for sure is that what got me here won't get me there.
My thinking needs to change... But I also need to trust my instincts...
Did I mention I was confused?
There's a breakthrough coming!
