We usually give you an inspirational quote on Wednesdays, but today we’re offering you a quote to steer clear of, shun, and avoid at all costs:
“We’ve always done it this way.”
SHUT. THAT. DOWN.
There may be very good reasons why something is always done the same way, every time. And every time, that should be examined, reconsidered, and reaffirmed, if so. If you don’t, you could be unknowingly overlooking new and better ways.
For events especially, “always done this way” is NEVER THE ANSWER — unless you really, really want a boring event that gives returning attendees little to find interest in, and enjoy the risk of missing out on new and unique ways to present your event that sets you apart and above.
Always look for new ways, new angles, new ideas!
