There’s the good, the great, and then there’s the people who change the world. Which group are you in? Here’s a better question. What further separates the good and the great, from the world changers?
My answer: Time.
“On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times.”-Joshua 6:15
The good walks around Jericho for 7 days.
The great runs around Jericho for a couple of days shorter. Hypothetically 5.
Now, the world changers…they sit for a day, strategizing and analyzing the best way to get the wall down on day 2.
It’s important to understand and know, which city has the pool of professionals you best operate in. Washington D.C., New York, Los Angeles, China, Abu Dhabi etc., has different types of professionals, that contrive at a different speed, skill level, and method of innovation.
Find where you fit and, move! Nothing hinders your professional ability to advance, than to sit in a city, state, or country, that is not advancing your professional career. It’s the number one way to KILL YOUR PROFESSIONAL CAREER.
Sitting in an environment that will not feed your level of skill(s) and innovation, is like a flower going days, months, years without any water, or fresh fertile soil. #slowlydying
Sure, you’re a big contribution to your city, professional circle, current job, and/or social group. The real question is, “How much of a contribution are they to you?”
Don’t let the comfort of familiarity build the fear of venturing off to a new city, state, or country even. It’s worth the risk of jumping out of being great, to becoming a world-class professional of change.
