To go, let go

The ability to change is a cornerstone in a leader’s life.

As Tarzan swings through the forest on a vine, he searches for the next vine that will take his weight and propel him to his destination.

To maintain momentum, he firmly grips the next vine and then let’s go of the first one. If he doesn’t, he will lose speed and be left hanging between two trees on both vines high up in the forest.

When we develop new skills, habits or thoughts, we need the courage to leave the old ones behind and move on.

Change is scary – it could go wrong.  Not letting go when we have to, will definitely go wrong.

When the timing is right and we have new alternatives, let’s take our momentum, height and direction with us and let go of the past.

It works for Tarzan, so who am I to argue?
