Two problems are eating up our economic base.

Greed. I want something for nothing. Give me money for as little effort as possible. Give it to me now.

Laziness. Related to greed. I don’t want to change the way I do things. I don’t want to do anything extra or difficult even if it leads directly to more business.

The next time you encounter really bad service, make a note of it. Tell everyone you know. Bad service is rooted in greed and laziness. Companies unwilling to correct these two evils will eventually fail. Speed up the process by telling your friends which businesses to avoid.

When the duds fail, the people out there who are working hard will reap the benefits.

It’s time the greedy and the lazy got out of our way.
