The Arrow That Will KILL Any Business - Carlisle, PA.

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams of Central PA RS334568

Every new business needs a certain degree of energy, excitement, and enthusiasm to get started.  Yet anyone that has started a business understands that challenges are inevitable.  No business lasts very long without encountering some degree of difficulties, and each problem that arises requires a new batch of ingenuity to overcome.


Yet once the initial kinks have been unraveled and the course has been set, perseverance must take center stage and lead the way.  

 

The greatest danger lurking on the sidelines is the arrow of complacency.  


Once one has been struck with complacency, it settles into the fibers of ones being, like a host that feeds upon dreams.  

One may be busy, perhaps very busy, yet complacency may still be at the core.

Business owners, check your pulse often.  Guard against the arrow of complacency that aims to suck your creativity,  wilt your passion,  and extinguish your flame.

Love this, Maria!  I don't have that complacency bone in my body but, have surely seen real estate businesses killed by it, that's for sure!

When complacency sets in, business starts  to slide and clients pick up on the attitude very quickly.

Very well covered, Maria Sapio.  Perhaps we have all seen how easily, how smoothly it enters an office and makes itself so comfortable - 'complacency.'

This reminds me of one of my favorite sayings.  "There's no such thing as staying the same.  You're either getting better, or you're getting worse" - complaceny pushes us back when we should always be moving forward.

There is a big difference between "being busy" and "being productive." Good article (and nice picture!), Maria Sapio

Top of the morning Maria !  Energy is the fuel to life.  Just like a vehicle there are many important parts but the basic gasoline (energy) must be topped off constantly or absolutely nothing runs.  Make it a great day Maria !  Mark

Status quo, We've always done it this way, it's good enough.  Death knells tolling.
