i-TFTD #155

i-TFTD #155

#155-1. When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.


#155-2. There is no such thing as an insignificant improvement.

-Tom Peters

#155-3. A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could.

-Zig Ziglar


The first two are clear prescriptions for change, any change.

The cynic might interpret the third as, "one needs someone else to take you ahead" but the more useful takeaways for us are:

a. One's belief in oneself might be a limiting factor and could be revised

b. Taking someone else's higher expectations from us as a challenge could sometimes open us up to previously unknown capabilities

c. We are responsible for stretching our team's achievements to levels beyond their own beliefs through expectation setting and trust.
