After performing a task 1000 times, you can still learn. Skills and talents can improve simply by gaining a new perspective. Opportunities to change strategies (in small ways) present often - and the savvy human will be constantly implementing these.
The rerouted co-op pitch is on point. I have probably described the business 1000+ times. Recently, a new friend I made was talking about our business. He asked a potential customer, “What do you usually do with your old gear?”
I had never asked that question. Not explicitly. World changed. An invaluable question to ask all customers. Now - we ask every time. Never forget to learn and take action. The time is always now - and people can always make suggestions that we are blind to.
