You’ve probably heard the old saying, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. Well, it is more applicable today than it has ever been when you try to re-invent your business. It’s a reminder to start thinking differently and to approach everything from a new angle.
In a world shaken and stressed with uncertainty, how you and your business respond will be critical. How you position yourself and your business for future sustainable growth has become the biggest challenge for everyone.
What will your organisation even look like as all our shortcomings are exposed? However, I don’t think it is prudent to be making any decisions or setting any expectations at this time. Sound decision making will follow your careful analysis of the situation going forward, based on solid facts. The detail is unimportant when the big picture is so unclear.
Step away from the crowd and the comfort zones of ordinary people, and change your outcomes by re-inventing and excelling in what you do.
Re-inventing means confronting adversity.
Across the world, people and businesses are confronting a new reality which has been forced upon them by the recent COVID-19 virus outbreak. For some, it has meant a reduction in sales and a disruption of day-to-day business operations. For others in harder-hit regions, it’s meant a near-complete shutdown of their local economies and a closure of many businesses.
Perceptions are real and vary from visions of the emerging new reality. Consider implementing more digital systems, tools and processes to narrow ongoing risks and focusing on your ability and capacity to emerge more robust and more sustainable going into an uncertain future.
The potential for effective changes are rampant and increasing seemingly without bounds. Possibilities are equally exciting, even though they might be a bit overwhelming ahead of the elimination of uncertainty.
For most, it is difficult to know where to start, especially when our regional communities are under such stress. However, you do have to upset the well-known ‘apple cart’, even to get started on your new journey into the future.
The COVID-19 virus has utterly transformed today’s business environment, and most businesses are struggling to understand its short and long-term implications. If the marketplace is unlikely to return to pre-March conditions anytime soon, how can you adapt?
