Does repeating the same thing really get the same results?
I attended Terri Cooper’s first breakfast event of the year this morning at the Alex Surf Club. John Mailer from the National College of Business in Brisbane was a great guest speaker and covered key global trends that we need to be aware of.
Lots of good material of course and pleased to see that John’s presentation and my recent articles are all on the same page. But there was one quotation from John that I especially liked as it is the complete reverse of what everyone normally says. You know the quote
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results
Well, John Mailer tells it differently, and how right he is.
Stupidity: doing the same thing over and over again expecting the same results when the economic conditions have changed
The times have changed and so must the strategies adopted by every business owner.
The times may certainly be tough in your market sector, but there always new opportunities if you look for them.
