How competent are you?  How competent is your team?  Your organization?  Do you ever take a flyer and just try something to see if it’ll work?  Maybe you find yourself thinking, "Why try a new thing when this is working pretty good?"

I love this line from Seth’s blog today on competence:

"Competence is the enemy. People who are competent are afraid to fail, afraid to experiment. They like being competent and defend it."

It’s related to Collins’ idea that good is the enemy of great.  And it is the truth. 

Competence is the Enemy
