99% of ideas are never seen by the world because the risk was not taken to try something new; something that went against the grain. It is better to have tried and lost than never to have tried at all. I remember drinking at an abandoned graveyard with a friend of mine in college (don’t judge me, we have all done crazy things we regret), and in the wisdom that only two doubles of whiskey can offer, he said:
“In each and every grave here lies buried a great idea which never saw the light of day, and it’s all because they had other commitments that drove them to the grave first.”
I remember laughing at his comment that day. But now I think more and more about how many times we have regretted not trying something new because it did not fall within the norms of what we were taught was correct. How many times have we let our education prevent our knowledge growth? As I grew in my career, it also aligned with the toppling of giants who refused to begin their journey of change or acceptance to new technologies because the old ways were correct. Case-in-point, KODAK!
Change is the only constant in life. The beauty of change is that it will always catch you off guard; will always sneak up on you. I’m not saying that you have to embrace each and every new concept that comes your way. That is not humanly possible. All I’m saying is that we should begin to accept that there may be a better way to do something and we should always be open to new ideas.
We offer a new way of thinking in terms of your network design and creating a simple, robust, and reliable IT backbone for your smart devices. Why not begin today by learning about a new way? Whether it is the right way or the wrong way, I leave it up to you to decide. Still, over 1,000 organizations have collectively saved over $100 million by applying this new idea!
It’s time to BEGIN…
If you’re reading this, you’ve made it to the end of my article. Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day. I leave you all with a fitting quote from Jack Welsh to think about as you start this week…
“If the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside, the end is near.”
