In my previous post on the power of energy I mentioned that even the best laid plans and strategies, lacking divine and vibrant energy, will fall flat and potentially fail miserably.

It is a safe bet that the energy levels on any given project are in direct proportion to whether or not that undertaking is a good fit for the host organization.

Lacking those ingredients suggests that it might be time to pull the plug.
Keep these points in mind:
It is a harsh reality to recognize that a person, project, or entity may be on the rocks. Strong brands cannot be built by hanging on to dead weight.
Is it time to pull the plug?
