What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

Now, far be it for us here at Rook Tree Coaching to comment on how we retained the Ashes, [it’s played with the wrong shape ball to start with], but, it does appear that the good old British weather bridged the gap between our past and our present performance. And that started us thinking… what is the flaw or habit that keeps us from getting where we want to be?
According to Marshall Goldsmith it may be that the very characteristic that we believe got us to where we are now – like the drive to win at all costs – is what’s holding us back. As his book,  What Got You Here Won’t Get You There. How Successful People Become Even More Successful, explains, people often do well in spite of certain habits rather than because of them; and sometimes need a “to stop” list rather than one listing what “to do”.
