Taking a little different spin on the adage "If at first you don't succeed...try, try again."
Last week, while leading a group through NYC, I had the privilege of chatting with a business leader who shared her secret to success in working with people. "Don't be afraid to try something new...even if it doesn't work that well the first time." She went on to share how much she enjoyed leading in a culture that valued not just coming up with new ideas...but applying them in the workplace. What a concept!
The dinner conversation reminded me of a favorite Einstein quote: "A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new." My takeaway and encouragement to each of you is to go out and try something new today (even if it is uncomfortable). Don't settle for "safe".
"If at first you don't try...you certainly won't succeed."
