old-dogs-new-tricksImproving a process is sometimes like teaching an old dog new tricks — although it sounds like it might be fun, the dog may disagree.

“I like the way I’m doing something now.”

“We’ve always done it this way.”

“This is the way I was trained to do it.”

“I can do it this way without even thinking about it – I don’t want to learn some newfangled method.”

The truth is, we need to keep moving forward to ensure that we’re not left behind.

Will Rogers summed it up when he said, “Even though you are on the right track – you will get run over if you just sit there”.

So, accept improvement as a good thing rather than a necessary evil, and give the new trick a try!
