Sir John Templeton – This Time it Really ISN’T Different

Sir John Templeton - This Time it Really ISN'T Different

“The four most expensive words in the English language are, ‘This time it’s different.”

-Sir John Templeton

I know we’d all like to think that somehow we’ve hatched a brand new plan that isn’t just as ridiculous as the first one, but chances are… It’s just as ridiculous as the first one.

Cliche though it may be, the very definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting a different outcome. In order to achieve a different outcome, you have to truly do something different.

Don’t think that timing is going to change everything, because sadly it is not. Don’t waste your time (and money) thinking that this time is going to be ‘different’, if you want it to be different, make it so.

Really change your thought process, adapt your pathway and this time it really will be different.
