Contentment - The Enemy of Invention
Nothing’s ever good enough, right?
If you’re anything like me, every achievement pales into insignificance just as soon as the cogs in your head start to turn afterward. Sometimes I curse the fact that I don’t allow myself the opportunity to bask in any glory, and that every new level I hit in business, or even life in general, suddenly seems to bring an all-consuming thirst for the next.
I’ve realised over time that this is a positive trait. Without the constant need to advance and grow we simply stagnate. Humans don’t stand still, you’re either moving forwards, or you’re moving backwards.
Somebody wiser than me once proclaimed contentment the enemy of invention. If ever you find yourself completely content, let yourself dream of the next goal, we’re at our best when we simply need to make something happen.
