Lean Quote: Have a Growth Mindset for Success

On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.

"Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning  —  Benjamin Franklin

Truth be told, I would say that not only do they have no meaning, but it would also seem they are impossible to achieve without any growth or progress. I think Ben Franklin is talking more to our inner growth and progress, because if we haven’t changed, that is, we haven’t improved ourselves or deterred at all from our origin, then what have we improved?

We must commit to providing continual growth and development opportunities for individuals and organizations, and we can’t forget about the need for self-enrichment.

No matter how experienced, tenured, or mature we may be, we all need to minimally “refresh” our abilities, attitudes, behaviors and skill-sets.

Having a growth mindset can help you maintain a positive attitude throughout all of life’s trials, helping you learn from and overcome difficult situations.

Be realistic; growth and attaining desired results does not happen overnight but a commitment to continual learning will drive progress that leads to success.

Even a small progression can be the start of something great. Good luck!
