I recently decided to shift direction somewhat in my business and I’ve struggled with how I would share that news with my existing clients and contacts, but today’s conversation has made me realise that it’s just a “pivot” in the plan – to stay agile, to inject some new energy, to get me back on track. And importantly, my original vision has not changed… to help entrepreneurs realise their dreams.
And don’t they always say that the most successful entrepreneurs and businesses are those which are agile… flexible enough to move with the times? To adapt in the presence of challenge and hardship? To change course if that’s what needed to get to your final destination?
How adaptable are you to the things that life throws at you? Is your business equipped to handle ever-changing demands and influences? Have you had to re-cut a plan or change your path when you realised it wasn’t panning out? Tell us about your experience in the comments below.
