Previously, I wrote a post discussing the need to challenge institutional knowledge.
Since then, I have come across a number of articles related to the basic notion. An example I wanted to point out for you today, is Seth Godin’s own posting, The problem with doing it by heart. He does an entertaining job of pointing out just how readily we keep on doing things the same ‘ol way, because, “…that’s the way it always comes.”
Do you do things on autopilot just because, that’s the way you‘ve always done it? It bears emphasizing the ongoing need to avoid complacency, the need to continually monitor one’s self, one’s organization.
