Reflect Change with Smart Skills

To reflect is to change, even change that creates friction at times! Apply novel approaches and you encounter ruts inside the human brain. Have you seen it happen? Transformation, especially ethical renewal that adds dividends for all,  takes risk! To move stagnant mental eddies into rushing waterfalls requires novel approaches, and an ability to admit mistakes. What changes would improve your situation today?

Change works best when times are tough.  Nor does it take a genius to agree that improvements rarely take hold in toxic work settings. Several broken systems currently in this country present ideal grounds for innovation, that bypasses the brain’s proclivity for ruts.  When creativity touches down on grounds furrowed for growth, improvement finds its chance to root and grow. Have you encountered that?

Hard and soft skills no longer work, since lasting change involves solutions that draw from and integrate multiple intelligences.

Use smart skills and you also question, target, expect move and reflect – to create new neuron pathways to improvement. Without questions – find passivity. Without expectations – find sloppiness. Without movement find wasted talents. Without reflections – find stagnation. How so?

1. Question new opportunities and you’ll engage curiosity as fuel for change.
