A BIG Social Care Business Mistake

Donkey Braying

Don't Cling to a Mistake Just Because You Spent a lot of Time Making it.” — Aubrey De Graf. 💭

I used this quote twice last week.

Clients were reluctant to let go of old ways of thinking, habits, and mindset in order to push forward. This is a big mistake in your social care business.

🤔 But I understood their reluctance to change as this was ME, and often still is.

I would cling to old ways of working because in my mind only I could do it right. My ego called it 'being a perfectionist' BUT the real me knows it is a lack of trust in others that prevented action. ❌

Because right here, right now is 'safe'. It may be a bit s**t, but it is safe. It requires very little apart from accepting that things will always be this way. My success rate in surviving this is 100%. ✅

But I remain clinging to the mistake. 🙇

"If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always got"

Change is hard. It takes vision, acceptance, and a huge degree of TRUST and courage. But in doing so, old habits are rewritten, and growth is inevitable. 🌱
