Want different results? Do something radical!

I get it.

You're tired of things being the same - your life, your career. No matter what you do, nothing seems to change for the better. You're still stuck where you are - career flatlined; life requiring surgery.

Take a leaf out of the sporting book...

A lot of you may be blissfully unaware of a sporting victory that happened yesterday. The America's Cup is a yachting regatta of some 165 years old held every 4 years, amongst a few select countries, funded by the super-rich of the world. My native country people generally have a keen interest in the regatta because a) we're a country of no more than 5 million inhabitants who compete on a world stage at an elite level in an elite sport, b) we often win!

Overnight, Team New Zealand won the 35th America's Cup in Bermuda against the US team, Oracle. A proud Kiwi moment - as a Kiwi, and a keen yachtie, it's a happy day!

Why is this relevant to you and your life and career?

How Team New Zealand won is brilliant! While they used impeccable sailing skills to win, they won first by innovation. A yacht traditionally uses 'grinders', the guys who grind away with their massive shoulders on the winches to move the sails, help manoeuvre the boat, and make it go very fast. The team replaced these hulks with...

Cyclists. Yes, Olympic cyclists.

If you want different results, you must do things differently.

The team decided that they'd be able to manoeuvre the boat quicker by leveraging the massively powerful leg muscles of Olympic cyclists, instead of the shoulder muscles of Olympic rowers, as they have used in the past. It was innovative, risky, and it worked!

They chose innovation to achieve their result.

All this brings me to this:

If you want different results in your life and career, you must do things differently and take a risk.

To use one of my favourite quotes, often attributed to Einstein

The definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.
