Companies that live in the future and forget who they’ve been often lose their core loyal customer base. But those that only focus on what we’ve already done are limiting growth and innovation.
Marriages where one party insists “you’re no longer who I married” is saying they don’t want their partner to grow.
Each of us bound by our past, and our accomplishments, and our failings. And we ALSO owe it to yourselves to allow our aspirations and dreams to flourish so that we can also enable the process of defining who we’ll be.
Sometimes we weigh too much on one, and yet we are always 2. It is, in my experience of working with companies and living, an undeniable truth. It is a tension we need to understand and live with…so we can harness that creative tension. Have you found this to be true in your life? How so?
