Complacency

Complacency is when we look back and appreciate how much we've changed. Of course it is important to look for results, to gauge whether or not what we're doing is working. The pitfall is that once we've climbed a steep hill, we tend to sit down to enjoy the view. While enjoying the view is nice, the longer we sit, the harder it is to build up our momentum to climb further. 
When we can locate these traps of complacency—and convert them into proactive steps toward self-transformation -—the feats of growth we can achieve are tremendous.
So this week, look for the darkness. When you see yourself putting your feet up on the desk and saying, “Yeah, I did that,” stop and look for where your garbage is hiding.
