Too many people do things because that’s the way it’s always been done. They find the status quo much safer than pushing the envelope or trying something new. Leaders need to be non-conformists. They shouldn’t t succumb to their business reality and all its inherent limitations. They should strive to create something new or different, but ultimately better. A leader is supposed to see things others don’t see. He/she is required to challenge existing systems, processes and solutions to find improvements. The future is created by those who make it not by those who look to the past or solely embrace the present as a means to achieve progress. And, in business (and life) without progress you are not simply standing still but moving backwards.
