A wise person once said, “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” That is a wonderfully true statement. In other words, if you continue doing exactly what you are now doing, then don’t be surprised when you don’t see any increase or change in your results.
It is the law of cause-and-effect in operation. The results you are now getting (effects) are the product of the causes (efforts) you have set in motion sometime in the past. To get greater benefits in the future, you need to change what you are doing in the present in order to produce them.
Whilst persistence is an important quality, persistence without flexibility can indeed be futile because, without some flexibility in your approach, you could end up trying to move an immovable object for the rest of your life. The willingness to constantly change what we are now doing and to also demonstrate persistence is what gets us around seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
