Losing Our Edge

November 13, 2013

Ever attempt to dig into a nice juicy steak with a dull knife?

Knives and scissors lose their edge over time, making the work of cutting much more difficult. Regular evaluation and sharpening will keep a knife in peak form to work its magic on your steak!

We speak of businesses or athlete’s losing their edge which previously had set them apart from the field. The athlete who has lost a step or the company who cannot continue churning out wining products quickly become ordinary. Instead of leading the pack, they find themselves apart of it.

Leaders lose their edge too.

We can get weary, worn out, or even lazy at times.

We begin to accept second best, losing the ability to give things our top effort.

Before we realize it, we have lost the plot and are focused on minor issues rather than the major ones.
