“Your best thinking of five years ago is your baggage today.” — Daniel Priestley Become a key person of influence 2010
Five years ago you had a great aim, and geared yourself towards it.
And you achieved it! You shot, you scored. Well done!
But since then, the world has changed, the goals have shifted, and your thinking of the past no longer holds the same weight as it once did.
Maybe it even acts as an anchor.
Technology has changed – what people once paid for is now free, meaning that the strategy that some people once hoped to make a living off is now redundant.
By staying the same, you have changed. Once you were kicking goals, now you are defending a lifestyle.
And the social world has changed. Data that once was true about the way people lived is no longer so. People used to live in nuclear families and wanted two and a half bedrooms, a garden and access to a school.
Not so much any more, at least not in the same numbers. They have shifted, and so should your business.
The more someone hangs on to the past – on to what used to work – the less relevant they become with each passing year. What once was appealing to your customers, is no longer saleable.
Well… what does my suburb look like today? Who has moved in? Do they even have a traditional family, or is something else more important to them nowadays?
Putting some research time into finding out the shape and priorities of your new neighbourhood can inspire a wealth of new ideas – you can not only keep up with the curve, but get ahead of it. What WILL they want?
By knowing this and changing yourself to accommodate, then forging connections accordingly, you can become relevant, a thought-leader, a community hub.
And you get to feed your own imagination, and revitalise your workplace. You get to see new opportunities and try them out, creating a vital and positive atmosphere amongst your team which knocks on to a more positive approach in their dealing with clients.
Having information that is up-to-date and relevant is key to feeding your mind fresh ideas of how next to proceed and keep your own mind engaged in the game that is your own career. Invent a new niche for yourself, kick ideas around with others, and enjoy your work.
So become vital again. Get some fresh info and change your own mind.
