If You Want Something, You Will Find Ways…..

I once conducted a workshop with a labor union on how to launch a campaign to get more members. The campaign would ultimately be successful, mostly because my client, the head of the union, relentlessly pushed his team to implement our plan. However, with respect to some members of the union leadership, it felt a bit like pulling teeth at the beginning of the process. I would hear plenty of reasons why a specific action could not be taken in their specific context. This reminded me of the saying: “If you want something, you will find ways. If you don’t want something, you will find reasons.” I don’t remember who said it, but the person deserves great credit. On these words, I wish you all a great summer. I will be back here early September. Cheers!
