Doing more of what you have done so far is seldom the recipe for growth.
This is valid both for individuals and organizations. At different stages, there’s a need to identify what can take you to the next level. And the more you can do this without putting what took you so far front and center, the more likely it is that the exercise will be successful.
Studying hard will most likely get you a degree, but won’t get you that far once you land your first job.
Putting all your marketing budget in acquisition can be effective at early stages, but the value of this operation will decrease as your company grows.
Taking on different projects and trying various things can be great when you are in your twenties, but it’s going to become counterproductive once you get older.
Assuming a directive approach to leadership can work as long as your team is extremely junior, but as they start making experience you’ll most likely get more benefit (and commitment) from letting go of the reins.
This is the tricky part.
Once you find something that works, you’ll probably have to adapt to changing conditions soon enough and find a new way. Don’t get too enamored.
