Switch for success
Albert Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” He understood the importance of trying something new.
Growing a prosperous business requires openness to new methods, new perspectives, new people and new suppliers.
It requires a willingness to switch solutions.
The secret to switching is to figure out what’s working well for your business and what is not. Ask:
• Am I happy with our customer performance?
• What could work better?
• Are my suppliers costing or saving money?
• Do my employees recognize a better way?
• Has technology made my processes obsolete?
• Is something better available to my business?
Put a microscope to relationships and processes. You may find it’s time to switch to a new solution.
Switching can be terrifying. But switching is also necessary for growth. And, that’s okay, because successful entrepreneurs understand that the right change at the right time can be good for business.
