Innovators live at the intersection between today and tomorrow; they direct tomorrow to today, the suborned old-ways live at the intersection between yesterday and today, they direct yesterday to today and hope tomorrow never comes.
It’s distracting today to have a conversation with tomorrow when yesterday continually interrupts. The future is a place which welcomes the minds of all humanity and unfortunately not enough people will allow their minds a furlough from status quo so, they refuse the invite.
Those organizations or, industries who refused to modify are punished, those who refused to listen to their lost customer continue losing more, and those who create their visions of the future through their memories will miss what the new competitor imagined then implemented by replacing your great relationship with their better experience.
There is no more time left on the clock of complacency. Leaders must have the ability to welcome their imaginations and create what should be from what it temporarily is, and do that consistently.
There is no more time left on the clock of complacency. Leaders must have the ability to welcome their imaginations and create what should be from what it temporarily is, and do that consistently. Regardless of one’s industry or their deliverable, the end-user is excepting technology advancements faster than most legacy resellers or service providers can adapt.
This fact is giving rise to the many business disruptions we are all witnessing. Disruptions of not just a customer’s desired outcome, but also the means to achieve these desired outcomes. Uber didn’t start another Taxi Company they re-invented the means to the desired outcome of individual transportation from point A to point B.
Many industries are still competing in yesterday’s manner focused on yesterday’s competitor and will miss what is coming if they continue looking in yesterday’s landscape for competitive threats.
“If we don’t discuss and prepare for the ways we can be defeated we are at the mercy of those who plan and execute our defeat.”
