The motivation for maintaining traditions may be varied. Some possibly wish to keep alive ‘the old ways’ of doing things, whilst others merely cannot be bothered to invest time looking for new approaches and the like.
In certain cases it could be the idea of maintaining traditions is linked to best practices. If we are to undertake particular tasks at a clearly defined standard of performance, this seems sensible. Applying experience acquired over time can help ensure the outcome reaches the desired level.
There will be unexpected elements impacting on the eventual efforts we make. However, preparing to the best of our abilities, while maintaining traditions in the process if applicable, will ideally limit the negative downside of these unforeseen inputs.
Reaching a point whereby we might even begin to suggest the concept of maintaining traditions itself implies a vast amount of practice has been given to the task in question. And this will, in a perfect world or at least one we are aiming to achieve, assist us in replicating our top performance.
