Reinvention By Degrees

The difference between winners and losers in Olympic races is often less than three seconds. That is a lifetime in a swim heat, a marathon event, a 40K run or the hurdles. Ask Dallas Torres who finished .09 seconds behind and didn’t qualify to represent the US Swim team in London this summer. Losses are often by inches and centimeters – not miles or kilometers.

Blogger Kevin O. writes, “When we drive a car, we are constantly making little corrections to our speed and direction to keep the vehicle between the lines on the road. Those little course corrections keep us going in the direction we want to be going at a safe pace.

When we travel, we forget to make those little course corrections. After all, we REALLY don’t have accountability when we are on the road. So a few failed course corrections can have some serious implications.”

Not all reinvention is a 180 degree turn. Often it is only a course correction of less than 5 or 10 degrees.

It isn’t always about a major turn-around.  This isn’t “Extreme Reinvention.”  Most time it is in small degrees that we tweak the course or the direction. Further down the road, it adds up to miles of differences.

What minor changes or corrections should you make to reinvent yourself… by degrees?
