Many years ago there was a television commercial about an employee that had invented his company’s top selling tire!
He was called before the board of directors where he received the accolades he expected. And after they concluded the kudos, they added one thing:
”Now, we want you to top it!”
There is never any comfort derived from resting on your laurels. Yesterdays achievements fade away like melting snow, and the “what have you done for me lately” attitude dominates the workplace.
And as the bar is raised ever higher, “topping it” becomes quite the daunting challenge!
