Twenty years from now, you will be more
disappointed by the things that you didn’t do
than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

Drowning or waving?

Running a business  these days might feel like being on the Titanic – after the ‘unsinkable’ ship hit the iceberg.

We are all familiar with, although sometimes frustrated by, the software on our computers. We have a vague understanding of the software that’s running in our brain. Once the reality dawned to those on the Titanic, they had to use their heads. Some survived, some dived in the water, some went down with the ship. Running a business today feels a bit like that. The watertight doors are locked down – so are the banks. The passengers are in disarray – so are our customers.  We look to the captain and his crew – politicians and government – for solutions.  We are where we are. But where will we be next year?

If you are either ‘drowning or waving’, or somewhere in between, you need to use your head in a time of crisis.  Those training for the forthcoming London Olympics are, of course, at the peak of their physical fitness, but the hidden element is their mental attitude and skills.

This is not left to chance. Their brains are as finely tuned as their bodies.

Why shouldn’t you be?

    John Redwood gave an objective and challenging view of the current business climate and a look at the future! Very thought provoking and the odd chink in the armour!
