“History has taught us that in an economic downturn, only 10% of organizations become breakthrough performers.
Will you join us?” – Futurist Jim Carroll
60% will muddle their way through – and will come out the other side marginalized, weak, lacking and unfocused. They’ll have missed their opportunity.
30% won’t make it – they’ll go bankrupt, close down, or be bought out.
10% – an extremely small percentage – will seize the opportunity of uncertainty and turn it into a path forward.
Who do you choose to be?
I don’t mind saying that I already believe that I’m in the 10%. My mindset, attitude and my drive to turn my broadcast studio into one of the top speaker sites in the world is already beginning to pay dividends. I’m flying at jet speed while others are barely able to find the runway.
And I’ve discovered the secret is not only utilizing my almost forty years of tech skills to charge ahead, but also my 25 years of stage experience with extremely detailed, customized and nuanced industry specific industry. Plus, the chops! The chops! I discovered some new Jetsons material that I used yesterday in a client talk that drew huge laughter, and my Get Smart ‘Cone of Silence” bubble is killer!
I don’t mind saying that I’m already in the 10%.
That’s not boasting – that’s fact, driven by relentless determination to reinvent (again.)
Are you? If not, what’s your goal to get there?
