You’ve heard the saying, “Winners never quit, and quitters never win.”
In fact, you probably live by it. It’s a good motto to have, right?
All the best bosses have it, don’t they? Actually, no. it’s a reason why so many leaders fail. There is a fine line between determination and stubbornness, and if you cross it, you’re going to be just like Sisyphus, trying to push that boulder up the hill. You’ll move it an inch, and it’ll go back down. Then, you’ll start all over again, just because you’re too stubborn. Instead of going by the saying, “Winners never quit, and quitters never win,” use this adage: Be stubborn about your goals but flexible about your approach to achieving them. To put it another way, change your plan, but keep the same goal. This begs the question, are you stubborn or just determined?
