Future rethinking should be a high priority
What is motivating the future rethinking of community members behaviour and how are your community and its businesses preparing for the online shopping boom in our globalised world, driven by technology.
Business today is noisy, complex and fast-paced. Expectations around convenience, value and choice have driven a higher proportion to shop online, where people can have access to a world of products and services at their fingertips.
Whatever you do, don’t let drought or other adversity be your excuse for not following your dreams. It is too easy to let these things keep you in an unwanted comfort zone.
We have moved from a simple combination of online and bricks and mortar to online shopping across multiple devices and in-store ‘customer experiences’. Touching and trying products, testing to see how they integrate with our lives, how they make us look, and most importantly, how they make us feel, is now influencing how and where people spend their money.
Everybody hates change, yet it is the only thing which will bring about progress. Maintaining the status quo will most likely be seeing you going backwards. However, is why future rethinking will deliver new and better opportunities.

Clarity in planning essential for an enjoyable future
Do you see your future as vague or elusive? Maybe you’re unsure about your plan, you’re not sure what to do next, and it looks like everybody and everything is leaving you behind. Every business owner faces this at one time or another, lack of clarity to accomplish their goals is holding them back.
Bring your future into focus so that you can do something about it.
Don’t be in denial. Admit you am confused and ask your advisors and colleagues for input because it’s just too hard doing it by yourself. The hard part is understanding their advice and then taking action. Clarity comes with knowing what you are about and then taking action with confidence.
If you can’t see your future with clarity, you will have problems. Consequently, you will waste a lot of time and money trying. It is always best to engage an experienced advisor to bring clarity, objectivity and perspective.
Remember as you make progress toward your goals, the clarity should start to intensify. So it is worth the effort to be very clear right from the start.
Clarity in strategic changes you make today will matter in for your future rethinking. If you want it to unfold as you would like it to”. Peter Sergeant
