Improving is internal. It’s about the now. It’s about being more efficient in the way you currently operate. It’s about self-discipline and clarity of direction.

Too much time spent on improvement and you go obsolete.
Too much time spent on innovation and you go broke.
The key to great leadership is balancing the two.
