If It Aint Broke Don’t Fix It?

I know the old saying goes: “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But I actually believe when “it ain’t broke” you still have to evaluate it! I don’t think it’s best to just remain status quo because something is working well. It may be able to work better.

I’m not saying to change for change’s sake. I am saying that we need to constantly evaluate what we’re doing and why we’re doing it. This is especially important in coaching, basketball, or any other sport or field you may be in.

So I would suggest you change that long standing quote to, “It may not be broken, but it does have to be continually evaluated!”
