Each new day and season brings reason for us to be working to improve tomorrow. Keeping on top of the economic news and technological updates require us to be in a forever state of revising plans. The thought applies to many aspects of our lives.
Companies are now making predictions of what is to come. Not only do we need to pay attention to the projections, but also how the pundits communicate them. Is there validity to what they say? Should the answer be ‘yes,’ then is this the type of company I want to invest?
AI technology is changing the landscape of many industries. How we work will change. No segment will be untouched. Medicine is already using AI to help with surgery, and the auto industry is vastly changing, too.
I’m now reading about 5G networks and how the internet speed will be six times faster than the current 4G. An article appeared stating that electric cars may soon be using lithium batteries. We almost need a team member to stay on top of the news for us as we work.
My curiosity is in how is all of this going to affect future business. Accordingly, we all have to address the question, what will my actions be for working to improve tomorrow?
How Are You Working To Improve Tomorrow?
You have likely heard comments about the way you do business. Now is the time to examine the remarks that stung more than others. If there is truth to what you hear, figure out how you may improve the next steps.
And if you believe the remarks to be of envy, how can you enhance the effort? Seriously, most often, the undesirable comments indicate you are onto something remarkable.
The Six Month Mark Is Here
Although we are primarily at home due to the Coronavirus, time moves quickly. The Year-end is fast approaching. Now is the time to revitalize or dismiss projects that are not making their mark. You will find it freeing to let go of what no longer works. Better is having more time to focus on what you desire to do today.
The lyrics, ‘Blackbird,’ by The Beatles, come to mind:
“Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free”.
Entrepreneurs Consider the following:
- Will any of your activities soon be out of date?
- Are some of your projects lacking the results you want?
- Is there an activity that doesn’t capture your enthusiasm?
- Do you have someone in mind who might want to partner on a project?
- Have you recently wished or dreamt of doing something better?
Once per month, review your achievements to date. And then do an honest review of what works well and what might need elimination. Next, spend time catching up on the latest technologies and trends to date, as they will affect future business. Revising future plans now will improve potential outcomes ahead.
After Covid19 Will Businesses Do The Following:
Companies will do well to recognize that employees may be viewing how they work quite differently once Covid19 is under control. Thought about how one works may see significant change.
Now is an excellent time to consider the following for a smooth transition back to corporate:
- Become more lenient with employees concerning remote work?
- Be more flexible with benefits?
- Increase inclusiveness among employees and teams?
- Employ people who can incorporate the new technology and those who can explain it to the rest?
- Be willing to forego older methods of conducting business?
- Refine communications?
- Create an equal pay program?
The purpose of business is to provide a solution while making money. The idea that we are all in this together is to be kept in mind. The closing of establishments affects everyone. My wish is that more people and businesses will motivate themselves to make a more significant effort toward equality and inclusion.
