Know what works but accept that it isn't permanent

June 8th, 2010

A good mantra to have “know what works but accept that it isn’t permanent”.

Just because a solution works today, doesn’t mean it will tomorrow, or next year.

And vice versa, what doesn’t work today, may work next year.

Holding this mantra true keeps you proactive, receptive to new ideas & opportunities but most of all creating a habit of questioning everything. ¬†And that’s not too shabby a habit to have.
