Resting on your laurels

When someone achieves something of value, it’s easy to accept that as the pinnacle of success. Why apply any creative output when the potential downfall outweighs the possibilities. If you’re already deemed a creative achiever, there’s no reason to opt to prove them wrong.

Well, so the thinking might go. But resting on one’s laurels isn’t a value proposition. It’s a “decline into laziness and a lack of application.”

Continuous output, attempting new things, pushing the envelope. Not resting. These are laurels we should strive to achieve. Not those placed upon us for past accomplishments.
