Life is interesting. I read a lot of different blogs, posts and books. Once in a while something I’ve been mulling over comes to the forefront when I do so. This morning, I was directed to an article on Forbes.com and their quote of the day was as follows:
“Learn from others whom have walked the path before you, but be smart enough to know when to cut your own trail.” – Narciso Rodriguez
Lately, I have been involved in discussions about best practices, quality management and accountability. The timing of this quote is apropos – It’s a reminder that it’s not always about what someone else has done. Sometimes breaking the mold or cutting your own trail is a much better solution to the issue. Sometimes you just have to see what solutions can be created and figure out what works or doesn’t work.
