Want to fail? It’s quite easy, actually. There’s just 1 simple step to follow…
Do what you did last time. Don’t tweak it, don’t evaluate it, don’t improve it. Just repeat it and expect the exact same response you got the last time.
Whether you’re a student, a boss, an employee or even a minister, this never fails. Do something once (and do it well) and people will praise you on a job well done. Repeat it, they’ll probably enjoy the experience again. A third time, they’ll begin wondering if there’s anything else. After a fourth, fifth or even sixth time, they’ll stop showing up for it. The event becomes irrelevant, the service becomes unneeded and your idea become obsolete.
If you want to succeed, innovate. Take risks. Try new ideas. Do things different just for the sake of doing them different.
Not every idea will succeed, but the “failures” will become mere steps in your journey to discover success.
But if you play it safe – stick to what you know works – eventually, you’ll discover no one wants to do it again. And then you’ll be forced to change.
Trust me, it’s better to act than it is to react.
Today, choose to remember your last great idea but not to repeat it. You’ve got so much more to offer than that.
