As the tides of the housing market rise, many businesses are breathing a sigh of relief after the hard years of the downturn. But there are dangers in the “comfort zone.” Recently delivered a speech to our sales team as a challenge against complacency, and in support of ProVia’s core value of Continuous Improvement.

The Greatest Enemy of Greatness
A good question many business leaders ask themselves is “What keeps me awake at night?” Well for me, this answer is simple – it’s the comfort zone. We all know that the greatest enemy to being great is “being good,” a place where we’re comfortable. The comfort zone, I believe, is the greatest enemy to our passion. We can become so comfortable in this zone that we lose our passion, especially passion of quality and service.
I believe at ProVia we’re “the best of the best.” This should make me happy, right? But what keeps me awake is that we know that we’re good, and that could keep us from getting better.
