S:1218 Distinction: New Mattress vs. New Sheets

(Distinctions are subtleties of language that, when gotten, cause a shift in a belief, behavior, value or attitude.)


New sheets are a simple way to freshen up a bed. Of course. But if the mattress is worn out, putting new sheets on it won’t improve your sleep.

Yet that’s exactly what we do sometimes: we try to get by with a new outer veneer without addressing the real, and deeper, issue.

Where are you ready for a ‘new mattress’? A shift in your business to respond to a changing market? A new eating lifestyle instead of the latest diet fad? A meaningful conversation with a loved one instead of going to a movie?
