Will You Adapt Next?

I never knew a world without television. The medium became a household item about the time I was born. My daughter, 19 has never seen a rotary-dial phone (or channel selector on a television) except in a museum exhibit. The Class of 2013 has never known a time when luggage didn’t have wheels attached to it.

So many changes take place in your business and industry that you have to stay ahead of the curve to stay in business. For instance, there will be a day when your customers will do most of their transactions either with an app on their phone or a card swiper on yours.

My assistant’s sons attend a school in South Carolina where all of the students have iPads and use them in various ways to do homework, record lessons and look up information on the internet during class.

While meeting with some union leaders lately, they told me that their members stay in touch through their smart phones than through printed or email newsletters. Blogs are replacing memos and post-it notes.

What is changing in your sector or industry that will make you the dinosaur in just a few years? What are you planning to do to stay ahead of your eager and more connected customers or members?

The clock is ticking. Changes are taking place.

You may choose to stay in the lead, or move out of the way for your competitors who are ahead of the changes. It is no time to play it safe or do business the way you always have.

While you read this, someone was adapting to a changing business climate and making necessary adjustments to capture more business.

Will you adapt next?
