We’ve Always Done It That Way

As humans, we’re often at the mercy of our brains, subject to whatever crazy, irrational thinking is going on up there in our heads. The mind is an amazing thing, but sometimes it can “think us” into a bad place.

One of those bad places is called The Sunk Cost Fallacy, which basically means that we’re hesitant to make changes from what we’re doing because we’ve already invested (money, time, or effort) into our current trajectory.

Too often we find ourselves doing the same thing just because it’s what we’ve always done.

Change is scary.

Change is difficult.

Change is stressful.

But, without change, there is no growth.

If we ever want to move past where we are, if we want to remain relevant, if we want to work hard to keep up with the times, we’ve got to be able to change.

Just because “we’ve always done it that way” isn’t going to cut it forever.
