About a month ago I started a new journey: I completely changed my professional career and joined another great company. I am going to write about a few of my learning’s throughout this process.
It needs to be noted that this change was significant:in size of company, responsibility, and culture…
We all read about change – We read that change fosters growth. Change is hard. Change is necessary. If you haven’t read about change, simply check out the Google results here:Change All this is great on paper, right? It is easy to simply read these articles and get pumped about “changing.” Then what happens? Nothing.
I asked myself something very inquisitive: Why?
I came up with this answer – any idea or change that you want to implement must follow this simple rule:
It must be complete on the theoretical level AND effective at the applied level.
What’s this mean to you? It means when you are evaluating a mental model or a new way of approaching a scenario – simply make sure it hits both of these criteria. Because theoretical ideas are great for brainstorming, they aren’t great at knocking to-do’s off the list. And because just knocking things off the to-do list will help get things done, but are they the right things?
- What’s the one thing if you completed right now, that in and of itself would make everything else easier or unnecessary?
- Then do it.
Be great, nothing else pays
