Seth Says Try Different

I really enjoyed this post from Seth Godin about just plain trying something different.

In many things that we do in life, whether it’s a habit or a routine, or it’s the business we run, we have systems for how things get done.  And those systems give certain results.   Many times, better results – especially dramatically improved results – require a complete rethinking of the system you’re using, not merely small improvements.

Einstein once said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  Well, it’s probably not quite that bad, but if you want different or better results than what you’re currently getting, then you have to do it differently.  Stepping back and rethinking the system can be the answer you’re looking for.
