The Truly Original Mindset
Great teams don’t allow sentiment to creep in when their vision is challenged by the current reality. They understand that there is always a reason to abandon the commitment to changing that reality. That’s why that reality currently exists. It’s not that no one had the idea to change the future. Those game-changing ideas are rarely original. What is original is the courage to do what it takes to stay committed in the face of mediocre options. It’s more likely that the current reality exists because no one had the guts to stick to the plan when things got hard. The right mindset isn’t concerned with being called too hardcore or legalistic. They are courageously unwavering in the face of mediocre temptations and only they know what it truly takes to accomplish what everyone else knows is right.
