Protect your mind from propaganda.
Simply doing something because “that is how it was always done” will lead you to a mediocre existence. Just because something is written in a policy book or accepted by the masses does not mean it is the best way to accomplish a task. Do not be fooled into thinking the status quo is gospel. Instead, discover why the policy was written and discern for yourself if such a policy is pertinent to the current reality. Just like technology, once a process is outlined and adopted, it is already antiquated. Weigh the pros and cons of initiating change to the value it will bring to the organization in accomplishing the “why”.
