KEEP THAT TRAIN OF THOUGHT
A client of mine always says ‘think the same way and you’ll do it the same way’. I totally agree with the sentiment of that statement but I notice that I tend to rely on thinking patterns that have worked for me in the past.
They serve me well because I don’t have to reinvent myself each day. I come across a problem I’ve encountered before and I solve it from past experience.
The global financial crisis has not only brought destruction to economies around the world but it has challenged the very way we think and solve problems.
WE NEED NEW IDEAS
What we need now is some imaginative originality. We are getting some of that thinking and maybe the ideas that were not around last year will be the seeds of the new markets that emerge after 2009. And that’s where I want to be.
I want to be part of the prosperous commerce that will materialize from these bad times. I don’t know where these opportunities are because by the time they become observable it is too late. What I am going to do is align myself with the group of entrepreneurs who specialise in connecting enterprises with their customers and clients by using database management.
BECOME A THINKER
I’ll be using my blog and web site to create lists in the niche market I want my business to be built around. What I have to learn to do is filter information, analyse the data and make decisions. I have to become skilled at being flexible and then I’ll discover my niche market . I’ll have to become a thinker and have ideas that differ from already existing concepts. Sounds easy, so why has it taken me 60+ years? probably because it isn’t easy, well I’ll see. I’ll have to consciously rethink problems, seek multiple solutions and resist giving fast answers.
