Do you have an open mind? Or, are you closed off to new ideas?
If you sometimes feel like you’re stuck, or that your key employees are stuck, and that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, then you’d probably be interested in a fascinating piece in the New York Times that was entitled: “Can You Become a Creature of New Habits?”
In the article, it affirms that ”brain researchers have discovered that when we consciously develop new habits, we create parallel synaptic paths, and even entirely new brain cells, that can jump our trains of thought onto new, innovative tracks.”
Moreover, “rather than dismissing ourselves as unchangeable creatures of habit, we can instead direct our own change by consciously developing new habits. In fact, the more new things we try — the more we step outside our comfort zone — the more inherently creative we become, both in the workplace and in our personal lives.”

Everyone says they want better results.
So why aren’t companies more adventurous when it comes to trying new things? Do they want to know how to get better results?
It’s the “I hate brocolli” syndrome of marketing and business.
If you ask the average CEO, “What’s the rationale for the way you’re currently marketing your services?” Many say: “It’s what we’ve always done.”
The sad truth is that many companies are engaging in the same old tried marketing tactics rooted in strategies that were developed eons ago (a.k.a. 2007). They’re wasting money on tactics that are not rooted in any real, current strategy – or based on the realities of today’s marketplace.
