No one sets out to be average. It’s never our goal to be just good enough.
Inside all of us is the desire to be our absolute best. But because we’re human, sometimes our intensity becomes desensitized.
Remember when you started that project, design, job, or training and you were on fire? Nothing could stop you. Challenges were laughable and opportunity was everywhere.
Then, over time, you started to drift. Your passion maybe dipped a little. You got tired and with that, lost a little of the drive or hustle that kept you going every day.
Sometimes the only way to get the pace back is to change gears. Changing gears can look like:
- Taking a break.
- Going to a conference.
- Encouraging someone else to be their best.
- Revisiting our history.
- Having a hard conversation.
- Remembering to be inspired.
- Hiring someone new.
- Changing team positions or responsibilities.
