Congratulations! You finally got your business to a place where it’s a well-oiled machine. You’re happy and your clients are happy. How long does this stasis last? Will you rest on your laurels, blindly hoping the creative environment doesn’t affect you, leaving you blissfully and ignorantly content with what is, rather than what will be? Or will you think today of what you can do and be to provide yet another reason for your clients to be delighted with you?
Growth is the answer–not necessarily growth in employees or even in revenue, but growth in creation and innovation. Stagnation inevitably leads to decline because the rest of the world is busily moving forward without you. So go strap on those running shoes and get going.
