What allowed me to change and prosper was the freedom to grow apart and lose touch with people. It’s hard to change yourself if you’re stuck in the same social orbit. There’s a gravitational force that pulls you into repeating the same circular pattern over and over again. Breaking out of that takes tremendous force.
…my rule of thumb. People leave companies. Sometimes on their own, sometimes they’re asked to leave. Whatever the reason, when someone leaves it’s a great moment to break out of the replacement mindset and ask yourself what would happen if you didn’t replace that person?
