WE'VE ALWAYS DONE IT THIS WAY - YES WE KNOW YOU HAVE, MAYBE THAT IS WHY YOUR CLUB IS IN DECLINE!

The most OBSTRUCTIVE PHRASE in any language is:

"We've Always Done It This Way"

I'm sure you have all heard it before ... many times.

Your response? Perhaps "If you don't make any changes, then expect to get what you've always had"

  1. But it doesn't have to be new to be an improvement. Many things have been changed and haven't improved things, the opposite in fact. And then we haven't gone back to what used to be for fear of being labelled backward thinking. The men and women who managed bowls for 120 years before us weren't fools..

    1. ....and there is the attitude that holds clubs back ... tell us one thing that was done 100 years ago in bowls that is generating income now! Easy to make claims but the evidence is against you im afraid. Nobody is saying they were fools, but 30 years ago they had to do very little in the way of promotion as bowlers were lining up to join, that isn't the case now so a totally different strategy is needed, you can't compare the 2 and you can't keep falling on the past as an excuse! If you make changes and nothing improves, then you change again .... surely that is blatantly obvious???? *Shakes Head in disbelief*
