I was reading a great blog tonight about when it is time to quit a band. As I was reading I thought, wait, a lot of the reasons one should quit a band, are the same reasons that maybe, we should quit a BRAND. Here are 5 ideas adapted from a band members vent that could apply to your business, church, ministry, or life.

1. You don’t feel inspired any more. You can always find a new inspiration, but when you feel you have lost the reason why you started what you do, you probably need to reconsider why you are doing what you are doing
2. Sessions are unproductive. If you are not being productive, you are just wasting time. Wasting time leads to burn out. Find a way to be productive or go find another venue for which to apply yourself
3. Creativity has come to a standstill. If you do not have creativity, what do you have?
4. There’s not an equal commitment or contribution by all members. Not a reason to really quit your brand, but for sure a reason to adjust who is on your team. Right person doing the right thing
5. You can’t keep up your end of the bargain. if you can not deliver what you talk about…get out. If your church is NEW LIFE and people are not getting a new life, you have a problem. If your ministry is about love, but you don’t like people, its time to adjust….just saying.
