We all know what the seven deadly sins, some of us has tasted one or more. The question is that are they bad for business? Decide yourself!

Sloth (Latin: tristitia or acedia ("without care")) refers to a peculiar jumble of notions, dating from antiquity and including mental, spiritual, pathological, and physical states. It may be defined as absence of interest or habitual disinclination to exertion.

It doesn’t mean only that I’m too lazy to clean my leftovers. In this context means one in-built function inside us. We don’t want any changes in our environment, how we should do things. We are very often against changes, for example we are used to do our banking stuff by visiting the office. Today you can do it from anywhere, digitally. “This is the way we use to do this” is the killer. It is also a part of the differences between the generations, younger ones don’t have the load of history.

This “how we used to” stuff can be a killer in the business world. Business’ are following mega-trends as an indicator how the world is changing and trying to make conclusions how to proactively prepare for the changes. These mega-trends are useful when you are building the future scenarios. Obviously they are not or you can’t build very accurate picture of the future, but you can reach close enough picture. When you recognise the change early enough you might be able to expand your product/service life cycle. I recommend very often with technology that follow the teenagers and then you see the future behaviour of the masses. But still the final truth is always something what we can’t predict, we just have to be sensitive enough to change our plans.

You just can’t stand and wait, you have to be in front-line. Change or die. No space for the sloth.
