A businessman’s long-time bookkeeper is unable to provide monthly financial statements.  An investor’s portfolio has underperformed and she is overcharged by her long-time investment advisor.  A not-for-profit board of directors does not get timely information from the organization’s executive director.  A doctor’s patients have to wait three weeks for an appointment although there are blocks of unfilled time before then.  I’ll start my diet tomorrow.

Many unsatisfactory situations continue ad infinitum without thought except for an occasional annoyance at the status quo. Inertia.  Allowing the situation to continue is irresponsible. “That’s the way we always did it” is not a solution or a sensible method of confronting the status quo.

Inertia is an enemy of transparency, sound management, progress and positive change.  Reevaluate what you are doing and are willing to accept and compare it to what you need and should be accepting.  Accepting less than what you should is probably accepting what you deserve.  Don’t you deserve better?
