The Definition Of Insanity…
Jun 30 2012
They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. You have a great idea but you pursue the same path and talk to the same people who got you nowhere the last time you felt some urgency around that great idea, and then you wonder why nothing of consequence matters. On the other hand, people who say “we tried that last time and it didn’t work” usually don’t try again because they expect the same result so nothing changes. They get stuck in the thought patterns that there is only one way to achieve the outcome. I wonder why that is?
Maybe most of us are insane and the rest of us are entrepreneurs. Effective entrepreneurs usually realize faster than others that when one way doesn’t work, they have to try another. But wait, entrepreneurs are supposed to be a tad bit insane to even attempt what they want to do against great odds. Is that a riddle, conundrum, or is it saying the same thing in different ways?Author: Aruni | Filed under: entrepreneurship | Tags: entrepreneurs, trying the same thing | 6 Comments »
