Things are going great. Business is booming. Your organization is running smoothly.
When things are good it’s easy to get content and assume things will continue that way. The problem is this is how complacency sets in.
With complacency, things start to slip a bit, things get missed, business starts to falter etc. The real problem is, if you aren’t careful, by the time you become aware of the complacency, things have fallen so far that it’s difficult to recover.
When things are going great this is when you should be figuring out what is next. This is when to try to go to the next level.
Instead of patting yourself on the back and thinking about how great things are (or were) figure out what to do next to keep things going forward.
Remember, if you aren’t going forward chances are you are going backwards.
Have a great day!
