“The brutal truth is that you now need a new plan: are you already ready to challenge your indecision and kill your sudden inertia?” – Futurist Jim Carroll
The world has changed pretty dramatically in just over ten days, hasn’t it? Most likely, so too has the potential for you to realize your goals.
Will you let that stop you? It shouldn’t.
Start changing the recipe already!
After all….goals are like pasta. Yesterday, they were pretty firm, right now are kind of soft, but if you change the recipe just a bit, you can be pretty certain they’ll be fantastic!
I witnessed this thinking within my global client base right after the dot.com collapse and 9/11 – and again in 2009. Some people and organizations seemed numb, frozen, unsure of what to do. Others? They decided if their world changed so fast, they would change too!
In fact, in 2010 I wrote about this observation: “Since the events of last year, I’ve been out on the road working with dozens of organizations. I’ve seen and have worked with two different types of organizations and leaders. I’ve seen innovation failures — companies that are stuck in their economic rut, and unable to figure out what to do next. In other cases, I’ve encountered some real pioneers and fast-movers. They are the innovation leaders — they have the same sentiment that I posted in a blog a year ago, in that they know they can’t panic — they have to go forward by innovating, changing and adapting.”
What will you do today? Are you still stuck in the shock phase? The world has changed. Get over it and move along.
It’s easier out here in the acceptance phase.
Come and join me in my optimism for what might come next!
