No, my problem is this. A far better mantra is 'Everything needs fixing'. It is the model of ministry I have worked with for the last twenty years at least. Things that are going well need as much attention as things that are broken.
Successful home groups need to multiply before they become too big for individuals to contribute.
Successful churches need to plant new ones or add congregations before they are too full.
Great youth ministries with a good team of leaders need to recruit more before the existing ones stand down.
Good preachers train, read and practice.

So it is pretty clear that, whatever the outcome of the Scottish referendum, there will be roughly 40-49% of the population who did not get what they wanted. And that will need fixing.
There is a bell-shaped curve to competence.
Over the hill
All tasks and ministries and organisations follow it. Just before it peaks is the best time to intervene to improve.
If it ain't broke; fix it.
