Beat complacency by speeding up — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
Are you constantly encouraged to enjoy the fruits of your labors? It’s all too easy to sink back into that feeling of contentment and self-satisfaction called complacency.
In the battle of Leadership vs. Complacency, a win for complacency comes across like a car pulling a trailer down a mountain. Gravity can make the trailer move faster than the car pulling it, which rocks the trailer and pushes the car. This can easily cause a wreck.
Solution: The driver must not hit the brakes to slow down, which is counter-intuitive, but needs to speed up so that the car leads the trailer.
