“If you’re not getting results, change your approach. The best way to get unstuck is to change your approach. You learn the most from trying something different. Sometimes this is uncomfotable, but that’s what growth feels like.” (MSDN Patterns & Practices Blog)
Above quote is from J.D. Meier’s blog and I totally agree with this. I have seen people with different approaches. Some people stick to their habits and don’t want to change the way they are working. Even I have seen people arguing against changing approach and even don’t want to listen that their approach is wrong or there is a need of change in their approach. This is the worst thing that I have seen people doing. People even have to pay off sooner or later but they don’t want change, even after failure. They find different reasons, blaming others or subordinates, or the situation. But they don’t realize that this situation is due to their approach.
Approach is the thing that can lead you to either success or failure. If by adopting one approach you get succeeded, it is not necessary that you will always be succeeded by that approach. With the passage of time and changing situation, you have to change your approach as well. One approach won’t always take you to the top. You have to take different routes, with different approaches, if you want to go up the ladder, otherwise your direction will be downwards.
