Are you satisfied?

Posted by on August 17, 2009

Thomas Edison said, “Discontent is the first necessity of progress.” The way I look at it is if you’re happy with the status-quo then you are probably so busy protecting “what is” that you’re no longer seeing “what can be.”

Don’t get me wrong. I’m a glass-is-half-full kind of person and my New Year’s resolutions always start with: Remain an optimist. But, I also know that being satisfied in business often leads you to a flat-footed stance that can keep you in one place instead of moving forward.
