Time to move …

October 28, 2009

“The faster you go, the more chance of stubbing your toe, but the more chance you have of getting somewhere.”

Charles F. Kettering

In this day and age (i.e. market and business climate), a business cannot afford to be stagnant.  A stagnant company dies, or at the least gets passed by.  Most companies are “trying to do more with less” in order to just survive.  Forget that – don’t just survive – “thrive”.  A time of adversity is the best time to uncover new and unique opportunities – particularly when your competitors are cutting back, and in many cases, frustrating their customers.  These are the same people who could be your customers. 

At Status Not Quo, there is nothing better than the opportunity to help our clients “think outside of the box”.  While unique and innovative solutions to invigorate your competitive advantage/customer offering frequently take form in the more efficient use of technology, we commonly see some of the best solutions as “low-tech”.  The best solutions and ideas are often the simplest.

People who know me, know that I almost single handedly keep the Post-It note industry afloat.  A great deal of the usage comes from brainstorming ideas.  The day I stop needing these precious scraps of paper is when I know I’m slowing down. 

One last quote that many people have already heard, but many more need to take to heart:

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

Walt Disney
