When the heat becomes too intense in the room, you either adapt to it or you check out of the room. This principle is universally applicable, including business.
Every business is supposed to solve problems and generate great revenues based on the level of problems solved. However, any business that is not solving problem has other names but business.
A business idea usually takes the form of water, it either fizzles away like the gaseous state of water (steam) when not utilized, or becomes fluid: mixing perfectly with some other business ideas. The fusion of two or more ideas creates a hybrid that will be far better than each individual idea. The last option is for the original business idea to take on a solid shape and become what it was conceived to be.
Ideas are like genes looking for systems or bodies to inhabit. When the perfect body or vehicle is found, it tends to express itself in amazing ways.
Is your business maximising its original idea? Learn to trust your instincts, especially if you’ve perfectly trained & developed it. Creativity and innovation are the two sides of the same coin. It seems almost impossible to have any innovation without getting creative.
As an entrepreneur, you’ll need to increase your productivity and improve on your competitive edge by paying special attention to making your business more creative. Your creative advantage can come from any of your team members. Just ensure you create the enabling environment for people to walk up to you with ideas.
However, the fact that you operate an open door does not mean people will walk in, you’ll have to be deliberate about everything. Let the fresh perspectives and ideas keep flowing into your organization so that your enterprise becomes a viable company that will stand the test of time.
