Learn, Share, Grow - What Will You Leave Behind?

November 1, 2021

Below is a lesson from Seth Godin on letting go of what no longer serves us, as well as our key learnings.

The Blue Courage team is dedicated to continual learning and growth.  We have adopted a concept from Simon Sinek’s Start With Why team called “Learn, Share, Grow”.  We are constantly finding great articles, videos, and readings that have so much learning.  As we learn new and great things, this new knowledge should be shared for everyone to then grow from.


What will you leave behind?

By Seth Godin

Twenty years from now, you will have new skills. New customers. A new title and a new kind of leverage.

All of this forward motion requires a less celebrated element–all the things you’re not doing any longer.

To get a new job, you’ll need to leave the old job behind.

When you have a child, you’ve initiated a process that leads to an adult…

Often, we try to pretend that growth comes with no goodbyes, but it does.

Perhaps we can go in with our eyes open, understanding that what we begin will likely end. And when we plan for it, we’ll do it better.

Key Learnings:

  • Forward motion requires letting go of things which no longer serve us.
     
  • We often pretend that growth comes with no goodbyes. But we must learn to let some things goes.
  • If we understand that what we begin will likely end at some point, we can plan accordingly and execute our plan better.
