Don't Take Your Life for Granted

Andy Grove quote about complacency

Most people need to work at life.

We put in effort in school to get the marks required to pass courses and eventually graduate.

We work at our sports to compete at an appropriate level.

We work at our careers to reach the levels we aspire to.

We work at our health to achieve our quality of life.

Over time it is natural to let things slip ..  and we stop working as hard as we might.

Are you taking your health for granted?  Do you get regular check-ups?  Do you try to have a reasonable healthy lifestyle?  We only get one go at this … my intention is to stick around as long as possible!

Are you taking your job success for granted?  Are you getting stale?  Do you invest in yourself … or do you expect that to be taken care of by your company?  When was the last time YOU invested in YOU?

Are you taking your relationships for granted?  Do you take more than you give?  Are you investing in those relationships??

It is easy to become complacent about life … but that can definitely “bite you”!

Take control of your life, drive it and live a life with no regrets.

The arrogance of success is to think that what we did yesterday is good enough for tomorrow.” … William Pollard
