I came across this in a file I was going through today, and it made me stop and think. I thought others may well be interested too: it probably applies to all of us, I know it does to me and my unit!

Seven Steps to Stagnation

  1. We've never done it that way.
  2. We're not ready for that, yet.
  3. We're doing all right without it.
  4. We tried it once, and it didn't work out.
  5. It costs too much.
  6. That's not our responsibility.
  7. It won't work.
