Hopefully you are fully aware and consciousness of the fact that the way we work and interact within our industry, our business, and our careers, is in the midst of a massive paradigm shift. And just a reminder, that a “paradigm shift” calls into question the rock-solid assumptions on which the previous paradigm existed.
That said, shrugging our shoulders or flipping the bird at the many new jaw-dropping opportunities and possibilities that are currently swirling around dinner tables, breakfast nooks and coffee houses, will continue to make it harder to thrive during this time of transformation. And it’s not like this too shall pass, it’s more like this is the new normal.
Important because nothing is more damaging to a career, destructive to a business, or catastrophic to a creative spirit than an inability to pivot, a resistance to change, or an unwillingness to look at the big picture from a different POV. Especially when our comfort zone, and the circumstances we are accustom to are suddenly threatened.
