Over the last four months or so “the new norm” has been a new coined phrase. Heck, I’ve even used it myself, but in reality there is nothing normal about it, right?
One might actually say “the new norm” is constant change.
That being said, how do you prepare yourself and more importantly your business?
Here’s the thing what has historically been common for most people is they get comfortable with their life, including their business. The problem that may arise from this is that you continually do the same thing, the same way day after day. Why change it up? Things are OK; I’m comfortable and I don’t like change or anything outside of this comfort zone.
You may want more out of life, but you don’t like being uncomfortable so you settle.
You accept the status quo!
Unfortunately, life through a curveball at us and uncomfortable has been thrust upon us in full force.
You may actually be the odd man out if you’re comfortable with current circumstances.
As I mentioned earlier “the new norm” is constant change so there’s going to be a lot of discomfort out there. Some will take advantage of this, others will let their fear or discomfort paralyze them.
What if you could get ahead of the change – if you could create a bird’s eye view?
If you could create an environment where you’re actually creating the change, you have a much larger chance to grow yourself and your business with quantum leaps!
Here are 3 ways to step into change and get comfortable with the uncomfortable:
- Continually ask yourself “what if…”
- What if you had to totally revamp your business model in 30 days?
- What if you could modify the delivery method of your product or service?
- What if there was a different process you could implement which uses less resources?
- What if you could slightly modify your product or service to improve the result your clients/customers receive and need more right now?
- What if you could multiply my profits by 2 or 3x?
- Brainstorm with your team (doesn’t have to be employees if you don’t have any, can also be independent contractors, consultants, family, friends, advisors) on how to achieve the answers to the above questions; get ahead by determining if there’s a better way and anticipating the changes you can control.
- Quickly analyze the numbers – run the forecast so you know if you have to make further modifications.
One more thing to keep in mind is that the changes you create don’t have to be anything complex; simple is better!
