Hi, have you ever thought that, “Do we eat to live or live to eat?” The same implies for ‘thinking’ as well. Isn’t it true that we exist simply because we think, and as we think so we exist? My dear friend, thinking is an extremely important attribute to grow and evolve in life. Every human being has an intrinsic talent to think, but we need to think in a structural manner so that we can move towards a proper direction and not get carried away by weird thinking.
Not just humans, even organizations and nations thrive on a unique thought process. They also grow because they stay focused and think different to push themselves towards knowledge and wisdom. In business world, the art of ‘thinking out of the box’ is an imperative approach for the growth of any organization, no matter how large it may be. In order to bridge the gap in between mediocrity to extraordinary, you have to think outside the box, stepping out of your cozy comfort zone and think beyond conventional. It’s often guided up by a lot of factors like your culture, social, political, economic, religious backgrounds and also your exposure towards outer world.
Non-conventional thinking is the urge in the real business world which ignites new pathways of seeing the world. You need to be creative and adventurous enough to take on challenges that can explore new ideas to exist in today’s dynamic world.
To conclude, just trace your attention on a story that symbolizes the art of different thinking can also save one’s life, like this – two men were on a jungle safari in Africa. Suddenly, they came across a tiger that started roaring. Both men were frightened and one of them started wearing his shoes. The other one said, “How is this going to help? We can’t outrun the tiger.” The first man replied, “I don’t have to outrun the tiger. I only have to outrun you.”
Diversity is little bit more crucial than just a notion that your smart small businesses today demands. Just look over a stats: in U.S. alone, a wide range of people are all buying what your business sells—or ignoring it—depending on whether your company is as diverse as they are. So, naturally businesses today can no longer dictate to consumers in this increasingly globalize and diversified world.
In modern era, more and more customers call the shots, and their buying decisions are based in no small part on whether a company and its products are attuned to consumers’ demands and desires. If the company doesn’t pass that test, then the customers will keep shopping until they find one that does.
So, if you are not so much interested in diversification, you may struggle in highly competitive modern business world. And as soon as your workplace begins to diversify, you can ensure a positive impact in your business and life as well. Look at how diversifying affecting your organization’s performance in terms of sales, efficiencies, and customers perspective.
So, don’t waste a minute – first acknowledge, and then adapt your strategy to devise a brand new pathway to be aligned with your expectations. Don’t neglect the bottom line:
‘Diversity is a business reality, not just a slogan. The sooner your company realizes this new facet of modern business, the greater your prospects of success. Start small and grow iteratively.’
