When we stray from the truth about



Our business.

“The complacency of fools will destroy them”

I really try to put myself in uncomfortable situations. Complacency is my enemy.- Trent Reznor

If you look around, complacency is the great disease of your autumn years, and I work hard to prevent that.
– Nick Cave

I think part of the solution, to not becoming complacent, is having a healthy self esteem. We must always believe we can make a difference and change, if not our circumstances, ourselves.

Waywardness and complacency are a deadly combination that can take down a career, a business, or a nation. Fight them with everything you have.
Your Turn
Where have you been wayward?
Where have you been complacent?
What are the dangers if maintain your course in either?
