We sometimes get stuck into thinking that we know what’s best and that our way works.
“This is the way that our company has always sent the newsletter out.”
This is fine if you’re on deadline and can’t make changes at that point, but if left unchecked can cause long-term stagnation and a lack of new ideas.
What’s worse though is taking this mindset into other aspects of work and life. Insisting that we know what’s best and what works without actually having done that work or been there before is counter productive.
It’s this thinking that undercuts the people that put the hard work in and really do know what it takes.
Learning more about why something is why it is can be a great start to widening our perspective.
