There’s no attitude more harmful to a business than the old and far-too-familiar slogan: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
To be truly successful, you must continuously look for opportunities where improvements can be made. Just because something is working “well” doesn’t mean it couldn’t be better. And usually it isn’t until you put that “thing” under the microscope that you’re able to identify how “well” it really isn’t working. To assume something can’t be improved without taking some time to do some due diligence, is to almost guarantee that it’s not as good as it could be.
Spend some time identifying things in your business that, while they may not be failing, tend to be forgotten or ignored. Areas of your business in which operations and/or processes have become second nature are a great place to start.
To allow yourself to be complacent or satisfied with mediocrity is a surefire way to watch your business fall apart right in front of you. You’re better than that, so be better than that!
