“Don’t worry about what anybody else is going to do….The best way to predict the future is to invent it!”, Alan Kay
How much time do you spend thinking about how to disrupt your industry? What would it take to stand everything on its head?
All my clients tend to enjoy what they make/sell/do. About 25% of them are thinking about how to change how people buy/use/experience what they do. These 25% spend more time dreaming, more time looking around corners and more time focused on improving every aspect of their company.
These are the business owners who are predicting the future by inventing it. If you want to be one of them, here are some specific and simple activities that will increase your chances for inventing the future you desire:
1. Vision: The more clarity you have and the better you are able describe to others what that vision looks, feels and sounds like, the better
2. Desire: If you don’t want it (whatever the “it” is) it is unlikely you will get it
3. Commitment: What will it take to achieve your dream goal?
If you are still ready for more, then do these:
4. Learn to be disciplined (I did not say easy… I said simple)
5. Learn to be curious
6. Learn to be resilient
