For those old enough ... Huey Lewis isn't going help you today ...
Let me be blunt about this …
There's no going back to yesterday, let alone 1985 ...
There is no going back to “how it was.”
Yes, this is heavy ...
Because COVID has changed our world so quickly, we have literally raced into a new era. Because it has changed so rapidly, people’s immediate reaction is to go back to the comforts of the old way.
I get it. Without a lot of time and experience to adapt, it makes sense to hold onto the norms we have been in for years. Change usually happens slowly and people can grow in it.
There are no “good old days”
We are moving forward, at an acceleration never experienced before.
So what is the opportunity level of where we are at right now? The speed with which change is happening allows us this amazing opportunity change entire business models AND industries instantaneously!
It is all new territory
Customers AND employees are willing to shift dramatically and do business in an entirely different way.
Some things might be a little slower right now … sales and customer purchases. Think about adding 1-2 steps to your sales process, maybe video or marketing.
Building an online relationship takes more time, engagements and connections.
This is an economic transformation
The level of opportunity to change, add to or do different business (become a supplier, buy a competitor) is so vast right now.
Look at this as an opportunity.
This is not an economic crisis … this is an economic transformation.
Geography no longer exists
Within 4 months, customers are just as keen to buy from another continent than from just up the road. Borders for business have been wiped away.
We are in a geographically immune world. People are willing to do business over Zoom, allowing them buy from the other side of the planet.
Strength in numbers
We have to stop think about the “comfort” of going backwards and embrace the rocketing of moving forward.
The beauty is that we’re all in it together. Literally NO ONE has ever gone through something like this.
You don’t have to do it on your own.
Get in touch with a coach.
Jump on 30X.
Surround yourself with people that see the opportunities. Can’t wait to see your results. And where we are headed, we will create on own new paths ...
