There’ll Always Be More Sheep
Why mediocre eclipses brilliant and how to fight back
The sheep have taken over and mediocrity rules the day. And those who want to be brilliant in their work are penned-in with the rest. But if you understand why mediocrity happens and know how to shear your way free, a brilliant future awaits.
The sheep have taken over. Mediocre businesses, mediocre leaders and mediocre outputs are everywhere. People and companies looking to do brilliant work are all too often eclipsed by the flock. The potential of brilliant ideas suffocated under woolly imitations. Brilliant problem-solving drowned out by incessant bleating.
But it’s not too late. While there will always be more sheep, it is possible to understand why the mediocre so often eclipses the brilliant. If you’re really committed to the journey, to avoiding the many pitfalls along the way and moving towards what’s really worth achieving, it is possible to be brilliant and stand out from the herd.
You can fight back against the mediocre. Unless you really want to, you don’t have to join the ranks of the sheep and settle for less. You can stay faithful to the vision, be a brilliant leader and be true to yourself at work. You can inspire the brilliant people around you to fight for the same.
