Letting go the status quo is one secret to building a better business

There are many actions that once worked in your business that don’t work anymore. There are things that served your employees and your customers/clients well once that don’t anymore. What are these inhibitors to the growth of your business?

Are you asking why and why not every day of your life?

If you are’nt, likely your people are’nt doing what they do better, differently or more uniquely than your competitors, and therefore it’s only a matter of time before you lose customers/clients.

We can change what’s normal (the status quo), when sameness is no longer serving us, whenever we choose to. And yet we wait.

In today’s world waiting is a costly business.

What are you waiting for?

If you know something should be changed, begin to change it today.

And if you think nothing can be changed, ask your employees, your customers/clients what could be better? Ask outsiders to take a look too.

We are all in the change business. To not change is to go backwards and eventually out of business.

Be the difference you want to see in the world.

"To act without knowing why; to do things as they have always been done, without asking why; to engage in an activity all one's life without really understanding what it is about and how it relates to other things--this is to be one of the crowd." -- Meng Tzu (Mencious) 379-289 BC
