The fly wants to get outside. In fact, its very life depends on it. So the fly does the only thing it knows how to do - keep hitting the glass in a futile attempt for freedom.
There is a window without a screen open to right that the fly could easily fly through. But the fly doesn't see it. Doesn't even look for it! It only sees one way to accomplish its goal as it repeatedly bangs against the glass.
The fly is motivated, has a vision, and it's "why". But without help to see it from a new angle or perspective, the fly is doomed to repeating the only behavior it knows.
A few hours later I went back into my office. The fly lay belly-side up on the sill. It lost the fight...
I thought about how this relates to us as a business owners. We work harder for desired results, yet we fail to reach some of our goals. Could it be that there is an "open window" that would allow us to easily achieve our goals and dreams, but we can't see it because we are so focused only one way to make it happen?
Many of us are working on our business plans for 2013. In addition to setting new goals, we are also reviewing the ones we set for 2012. How did you do? Is there something that you are rolling over, year to year, that you want and need to get done but the task is either too overwhelming, will take too much time, or you just don't know how to do it?
