But that’s the way I’ve always done it!

A few years ago, I decided to try and coffee cup and pencut down the amount of caffeine I was drinking each day. I’d fill up a small container with half regular and half decaf and mix it all together.

Fast forward four years and I’m no longer mixing in the decaf coffee.

And now for the funny part. This morning my husband asks me why I’m still moving the coffee into the smaller container. Hmmm. It took me a few minutes to remember why I had started doing that in the first place!

So this morning I threw away the small container. How many years had I been doing that extra step for absolutely no reason?!?

So it is the same for businesses (whether for- or not-for- profit). Sometimes we continue doing things the way we have been, without taking a moment to think through the why.

Is there something you can throw away or stop doing today? I encourage you to go for it!
