Are you thinking about your eventual post-pandemic future, and how you will align yourself to the opportunities that are unfolding right now? Or are you stuck in the here and now, unable and unwilling to comprehend what you need to do to align to ‘what comes next?’
This post will provide you some motivational guidance on what you need to do right now.
To start out, you need to understand that the future is being reinvnted all around you, right now, at blinding speed. Watch this clip: “Rethinking Your Future: How Has the Global Pandemic Changed The Axis of Your Universe?”
The problem during an era of uncertainty is that people often remain frozen, unwilling or unable to move forward. Take a look at this clip from 2009 – I’m on stage in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a keynote presentation built around the theme, “When Do You Innovate?”
When do you innovate? Seriously! Are you starting now?
The realty is that people become trapped by what I have long called “aggressive indecision.” It’s such a critical concept that the Wall Street Journal invited me in to a high profile event to address the barrier that exists when people let indecision guide their future.
Maybe you need to ‘revisit the future.’ I filmed this clip in my virtual broadcast studio with some concise guidance on what you SHOULD be doing.
So what to you do about it? Innovate despite uncertainty – the future is still out there!
Because quite simply, the future is back!
The problem? The pandemic has brought back the innovation killers – the attitudes that cause an organizational sclerosis that holds us back!
