Hiding in Plain Sight

What has held us back is not what we don’t know, but what we think we know so we’ve stopped asking.”

We take so much of how our world works for granted.

We think we know so much more than we do.

To be truly successful when you’re driving change, practice looking at situations with fresh eyes.

Imagine you have just reported to your organization and you are struggling to make sense of it all.

Force yourself to describe details, to state what action you are taking, and to offer a “Why?” behind you taking it.

What would you notice? What would you say? What reasons would you offer for your actions?

Now go look, go describe and go offer your reasons.

When you do, you’ll be amazed what was hiding in plain sight.
