“If you allow the status quo to persist, you can’t expect to improve performance, and you can’t expect to win.”
“The way it has always been done…” these words are a death knell for change. Hearing that as a reason not to do something is like the proverbial ‘nails on a chalkboard’ (if anyone even know what that means anymore), it just makes my skin crawl.
The status quo represents the way things have always been. That will never lead to necessary growth and change. I much prefer an attitude of “relentless discontent with the status quo.”
That is the only way you can create change and win…
