March 17: Play the Game, Not the Scoreboard

When a hockey team is up by a few goals it is easy to get complacent. The best teams know they have to keep skating full speed, regardless of the score, or they give their opponent a toe hold to get back in the game.

The best companies stay fresh and never let up. The ones that do get caught off guard by a wily start up or disruptive technology. Make sure you keep playing full speed.

Are you complacent in your business? Are you the veteran hanging on or the rookie trying to earn a spot?
