Getting Comfortable for All the Wrong Reasons

Posted on: March 29, 2013

“If you don’t believe in the work you are doing here, go home. Work somewhere else.” – Ken H.

Why do we work the jobs that we do? For some, it’s to pay the bills. For others, it’s due to passion. People become accustomed to routine. Day in, day out: wake up, work, go home, eat, sleep. After awhile, this can wear someone down. Attitudes shift, productivity diminishes.

This is what I like to call “Workplace Complacency.”

Workplace Complacency is the pitfall of many businesses, but how can we battle it? The answer is through passion and curiosity.

Being passionate about your work is extremely important. Every opportunity is an opportunity to do your best work.

Being curious is also important. You’re never done learning. Supposedly, it takes 10,000 of experience to be considered an “expert.”

Start clockin’, baby. You’re in for the long haul.
