The danger of success

“It’s human nature to start taking things for granted again when danger isn’t banging loudly on the door.”

 

~David Hackworth

 

The danger of success, particularly when it lasts any length of time, is we tend to get complacent.  When we are in crisis, our intensity and ability to deliver extraordinary effort is amazing.  The key to sustainable success is to remain intensely focused on uncovering ways to build upon our strengths and identify and act on opportunities for improvement.  Circumstances always change and those that built the recipe for current success will change.  And when they do, you need to be ready.
