You probably know the saying that there is no standing still in life. You are either growing or you are falling behind. Look at nature: what’s not growing is dying.
What I find more surprising is the fact that many organizations are like a protected area for those who are satisfied with the status quo.
Many people in those organizations have lost all hunger for growth. They are living their lives like a being that is moved here or there without a real drive to stand up and say: “It is me who gives direction!”
I’m not making the case here for starting a revolution in your organization (even if this would sometimes be needed). What I’m saying is that you only live up to 10 percent of your capabilities as a human being if you stop growing.
And to provoke it even more: It is amazingly selfish not to grow personally at the highest rate possible. Because you are gifted to help other people living better lives, to make a positive contribution to the world. By not tapping into your full potential, you are consequently refusing to help others.
In my blog, I regularly give tips and ideas about growth levers for yourself and your team. So, the next questions then is: how do you know that you are growing? This question sounds simple, yet it is profound.
Only if you are sure that you are growing with the highest impact are you on the right track. Most people (and businesses) in contrast are like leaves in the wind, sometimes moved up, sometimes down.
