"They were all bored to tears waiting to hear something they knew" is the report from the band on the audience’s reaction to the first live performance of Stairway to Heaven. They bombed. The audience wanted hits, not something new, writes Seth Godin in his blog and concludes: Every good idea starts as a new idea. And new ideas are never familiar.A good food for thought!
Have you ever asked yourself is it the unfamiliarity with new things that keeps you away from so many good ideas that can inject new life into your company and your lives?
Is our fear of the unknown so strong to make us choose to enjoy the illusional comfort of status quo rather than challenging it?
At this time in history there will be no progress unless we start experimenting with new ideas smartly, and choosing the next steps wisely. Bravery and determination can speed up the process.
There's still time to change the road you're on... goes the lyrics of Stairways To Heaven.
