“Whenever an individual or a business decides that success has been attained, progress stops.”
~Thomas J. Watson
Most people, teams, and organizations react in the same way to success: An assumption that they have the right formula for success and so they decide to use that formula again and again. Logically if you consider the extraordinary level of change occurring in our macro and micro economic environment today, it is obvious that the formula for success today can’t possibly be relied upon to continue to work. Interestingly most people will never understand this. They keep trying the same formula and are surprised, even devastated, when it doesn’t work. The key is to pay attention to your environment. Observe, learn, and adapt. So be part of the unique few who not only understand this but act on it: reinventing success daily through their curiosity, observations and ability to test new ideas.
