“Do not get obsolete like an old technology, keep innovating yourself.” - Sukant Ratnakar
Have you ever gotten a new software or app and when you went to open it up received the message that it wouldn't run on the computer or device you were looking to use it on? This is usually because the device doesn't have the correct hardware or software to run the latest programs. So what do you do? That 's right, you need to update to keep up with the newest technology.
The same thing happens in your life. Even when you have been successful, the game is changing at a faster and faster pace. The only way to maintain the success is to keep innovating.
This means multiple types of opportunities. It could be:
- new marketing ideas
- different product solutions for your customers to meet their needs
- new markets to expand into, new niches to enter
- better methods to service your clients
- improved customer service.
One of the challenges for many entrepreneurs is they are too involved and in the middle of the business - it can be hard to see some of the ways to innovate.
Attending training events, industry conferences,working with a coach or mentor, reading voraciously, networking within your industry and outside of it, masterminding with other business owners and outside consulting are all ways to pick up new ideas and fresh eyes on your business. Pick at least two of these to be doing at any one time. Then keep on adding new options to your innovation mix.
Staying on top is a continual innovation process. The best are always adding new pieces to stay where they are. What are you going to do to step up your business and your life to the next level? Make sure you are upgrading constantly to avoid the old technology scrap heap.Do It Different!
