Diving into the business world is usually not an easy step as you would have to cross many hurdles which you won't naturally find easy. Most people often give up before the business even got started.
If you have the courage to begin, then you have same to succeed
In business, predicting the future can be notoriously unreliable, simply because we live in a VUCA world.
What is VUCA?
V - Volatile
U - Uncertain
C - Complex
A - Ambiguous
In the business world, one thing to note is that you must keep evolving or you will eventually get sidetracked. Let's take a look at Nokia for example, once they stopped pushing out new updates and producing new fancy techs, they started to lose market to the likes of Samsung and others.
If the rate of change outside exceeds the rate of change inside, the end is in sight
Meaning you must keep evolving in your mind or in your business or you will eventually fall out. You just can't keep up.
You keep doing things the same way it's been done for generations and expect a better outcome?
To respond with yesterday's option is not the solution. What is the solution?
Become VUCA Prime
What does it mean to be VUCA prime? Let's take a look below
V - Vision (intent to create a future)
U - Understanding (look, listen, engage, ask questions, have a flexible perspective)
C - Clarity (have a defined goal, know what you want, and how to achieve it)
A - Agility (speed, apply creativity, think outside the box)
Learn the art of asking yourself questions (e.g what works?)
Your point of view is not the only one that exists
Empower (value network over hierarchy
You need a power tribe
Place of comfort
Failure or success, yes success can also be an enemy because then you feel too relaxed.
JUST DO IT
In conclusion for this episode,
