BANNED – ‘Because we’ve always done it like that’

One of the silliest things people say when asked why things are done in a certain way: “Because we’ve always done it like that.” This is NEVER the answer, and always stifles creative thinking.

Ban it from your workplace! Not just $1 in the cookie jar, ban people from saying it. Ever. Shift their thinking towards the new. Look at things afresh. See how they might be. Not how they are. Don’t concentrate on the job getting people to change. Think about how greater things can be.

If in doubt, read this. And then this. And never utter it again. Full stop!

Ooowww… I feel better now that’s out of my system 🙂

  1. Hi, Charlie.

    I’m glad someone else despises that as much as I do. That’s usually the last straw before i go completely rogue.
