The enemy of success

Sir Alex Ferguson, one of the world’s greatest football managers, deeply appreciates that complacency can kill success. When you have had multiple successes as a team, it is natural tendency to become complacent. And yet, the focus and work ethic are vital for the team’s continued success. And the focus to stay successful is also one of the reasons why Sir Ferguson never gets complacent about the current talent in the team. He is constantly on the lookout for newer talent and tweaking the makeup of the team. In fact, he would look three to four years ahead and see what the team was going to be and evaluated how newer members can take over the roles of older members.
