Complacency Is Your Enemy

What do you think of our new tagline?
Did you notice our latest change? No? That's okay, it's extremely subtle.

If you take a gander at the above image, you'll see our tagline has changed. I'll give you a second to check out the site header, as well.

Why the change? We accomplished our previous goal.

Of course, Elise and I still advocate and write material for up-and-coming young professionals breaking into communications. However, we have already broken into our respective industries, so we've shifted to the next phase of career building: making it.

Since this blog is for us to share our professional journeys with you, it's only fitting we change the tagline to reflect where we are on our journeys.

It's important to continue to create other goals as you progress through your career. It's a great way to continue to push and challenge yourself.

One day, I was talking to someone and we were discussing our futures. We told each other our professional goals, and after I shared my mine, he said, "Only the director of communications? Why not own the team?"

I've been so focused on achieving the goals I've currently set, I never thought about achieving bigger goals or aiming higher. The conversation left me with some food for thought, and ever since, I've been thinking about other goals I could add to my list to continue having something to strive for and work toward.

Another lesson I've learned in the professional realm is never get too comfortable or become complacent. Complacency is your worst enemy.

Until next time,

- J
