“Every day, you have a chance to make your own opportunities!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
It’s all up to you, and not anyone else. So what are you going to do today?
That’s the mindset that you need to be in, and its the perspective I provide to my clients from the stage. Consider 3D printing, for example, which is seen in this photo from a manufacturing event that I headlined.
The acceleration of this technology means that we can now flip the traditional process of product design and development on its head. No longer do we need to design and commit to a massive production run; instead, we can design, prototype, test, redesign, and test again. The new methodology of iterative product design and development, which completely changes the way that we might think about the opportunity in front of us with a new product.
You can do the same thing with your approach to opportunity throughout the day. With the right mindset, you can try one idea, and if it doesn’t fly, try another. Iterate, redo and do it again.
