One of our many goals at The Carvonis Group (Miami, FL) is to never become complacent. Complacency is the enemy of knowledge, innovation, and productivity.
Some people hit a point in their lives where they feel smug and satisfied with their accomplishments. Don’t get us wrong—confidence and gratitude are always key, but so is tenacity. The key to real success is always raising the bar.
At times it can be difficult to catch the complacency bug before the damages are severe. That’s why The Carvonis Group wants to share 3 possible warning signs that you’ve become complacent in your life and career.
1. You’ve stopped learning
When people become too comfortable, they stop pursuing knowledge. They think that they have hit a point in their careers where they don’t actually need to learn anything new. This is never true! You should be aiming to learn at least one new thing every day. When you follow this pattern, you actually end up learning a whole lot more because it can get addicting!
2. You never take risks
Complacent people never step out of their comfort zones.
Feeling nervous or scared is very normal. It is a perfectly natural reaction to the unknown. But, if you are not feeling fear every now and then, you probably aren’t taking enough risks.
In order to progress in life and in your career, risk-taking is necessary—just ask anyone at The Carvonis Group. Never get too comfortable!
3. Life is a monotonous routine
Routines are great for organization and productivity; however, you need to give yourself some room for fun and spontaneity! If you feel like you are doing the same thing every single day it can be harmful to your creativity, mental health, and personal growth.
Have you ever seen the movie ‘Groundhog Day’? Bill Murray’s character practically goes insane from living the same day over and over and over again. Real life is obviously a lot different from the movie, but it shows the importance of spicing things up!
