Nothing Flourishes Without Attention

Nothing flourishes without attention. This simple phrase is endemic in all endeavors. A gardener knows all too well what would happen to his plants if they are not attended to.
Take this phrase and apply it to every other pursuit. Without reviewing the newly emplaced activity or practice it will not continue to produce the results it showed at its inception. In organizations, employees that feel ignored will grow complacent in their output, and eventually even the once talented and highly energized individuals do not feel like part of their team or no longer see the importance of their task.
Without attention there is a loss of interest and outcomes decline to mediocre. Some managers pay attention to those things that seem very important at the moment, but by forgetting the core values other areas get neglected and get less attention. Like the garden they soon wither away.
Paying attention does not have to be done daily, but like a checkup with the physician it must be done on a regular basis. So if you are not getting the results from something the way you once had, try giving it a little nurturing, because "Nothing Flourishes Without Attention".
