Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 1/6/14

Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 1/6/14

January 6, 2014—Issue #224

This week’s focus point: Do you know why “eyewitness news” and similar productions look the same all over the country? Or why every late night talk show still imitates what Johnny Carson was doing 50 years ago? Or why award show formats are all the same, and all boring? Because people tend to be derivative, aping what appears to have worked for others, and are afraid of trying anything new. I’ve seen professional speakers simply copy what they think works for others, prospective authors try to copy others’ success. If you’re not failing, you’re not trying. You don’t lead the pack by falling in behind the leader, you have to do something to pass the leader. Ironically, it may be easier than ever to stand out in a crowd today. (Note: My memo last Monday on the weaknesses in higher learning drew enormous feedback with only a single dissenting email–from a college professor, who gave me pages of awards the athletic teams he’s coached have won!)

Monday Morning Perspective: Where there is no vision, the people perish. — Proverbs 29:18
