Battling complacency

As we celebrate 6 months of being a Moishe House, the every day grind and trying to balance Moishe House responsibilities with other responsibilities can lead to complacency. That's expressed in going for easier events, rather than more inventive events that require more work, trying to do things the easier way rather than in a way that would lead to more successful events. This is especially brutal around the holidays, since many people are on vacation, a lot of the people who come to our events are out of town, and no one really feels like focusing on anything serious. How does one deal with complacency? My solution is to remember the goal, remind oneself of past successes and do a little bit every day. What we're trying to accomplish is important, and it helps to remember that whenever you just don't feel like putting in the extra effort.
