Success breeds stagnation, writes Paul Sloane, and managers need to be constantly on guard against their own inertia if they're to develop creative new ways of doing business. "The innovative leader has to vigorously fight the complacency of success," he writes. "What is needed is a restless hunger for experimentation and change."

I think I can relate to this. The last couple of years has been much harder for us - I've probably relied on previous success more than I should have. Back to the grindstone with a vengeance now, though... Twisted Evil

I agree - everything changes in the business world on a daily basis, and a companies strategy should keep up with this.

Have you done anything differently to revive your energy Paul?

Not yet, but we have a New Year around the corner. I feel a bit stuck in a rut at the moment with so much paperwork and lots of little jobs to do. Once I get my desk cleared of those, I'll hopefully be able to re-focus on the bigger picture.

It does seem as though energy is important to so many areas of life, but especially so for business.

It's the little jobs that get me. I'm not so bad if I have to get my teeth stuck into something but it's all these niggly little things which must be done and yet they lurk at the back of my mind rather than just getting on and doing them. Silly really, some of them only take five minutes and can reap good rewards in terms of creating good relationships or moving things forward.

I just love forging ahead with new things - and then leave all these little untied knots in my wake. Dave tidies up a lot behind me but I have to face up to this "little jobs" problem as being my biggest weakness in business. As well as starting new things and not finishing them. And always having too many new ideas. And spreading myself too thinly.... Laughing
