Just Because We Can

Many of the people in our sphere (our friends, our coworkers, our competitors) are moving forward, doing what they need to do to get better. Whether it’s officially going back to school to finish that degree, learning something new from a book or an online class, or upgrading the things they use in their business, they’re putting themselves out there in order to improve; taking chances in an effort to get better at what it is they do.

And, all too often, we respond by standing pat.

I’m good.

We keep on doing the same things we’ve always done.

It’s working for me. Why should I change?

We wait to get better, to learn something new, to upgrade our tools and methods until we’re forced to, dragged kicking and screaming into modernity.

How would things be different if the next time we have an opportunity to get better, we jumped at the chance?

Not because we need to, not because we have to, not because our spouse/boss/industry is forcing us to, but just because we can.

Imagine that: doing it on our own, just because we can.

Change may not always bring growth, but there is no growth without change.
