What is the risk of staying inside a mistake? In episode 89, I interviewed Kathleen Adams, who started her new business in her fifties and she discovered that the platform she chose to run her business on was a mistake. We dove into how to deal with moving through that mistake. What it means to push through and choose something different. But I think that there is a lesson here for all of us about what it means to let go of a commitment and move on to something else.
When you make a commitment to something (a job, a marriage, a business venture, a partnership) it feels easier to stay inside that commitment rather than go through all the pain and heartache of moving into something new. It feels risky to move into something else. There’s inertia. There are all the things that we’ve done to get settled in that decision. And there are all these unknowns on the other side of it. Will it actually be better? And how do I really know that it’s going to be an improvement? But at the same time, you can’t sit and stay in that mistake. Change is painful. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.
Consider what is the risk of not making that change or staying in that mistake. It’s regret. Regret is the biggest risk.
So if you realize that something in your life is a mistake. Then it might be time to start making changes and understand that there is going to be pain with it, but you’re going to be able to push through. And there will be something new on the other side.
