I read this article a while back written by Seth Godin called “The Wrong Bus”. I absolutely loved his article, because he shared such a powerful lesson. After all, who hasn't been guilty of staying on the wrong bus long after they should have jumped ship?
Here is what Seth wrote:
*Your first mistake was getting on the A53 bus, the one that goes crosstown instead of to where you're going.
*Mistakes like this happen all the time.
*The big mistake, though, the one that will cost you, is staying on that bus.
*I know it wasn't easy to get on the bus. I know you got a seat. I know it's getting dark outside. But you're on the wrong bus, and staying on the wrong bus won't make it the right bus.
*If you really want to get where you set out to go, you're going to have to get off the wrong bus.
