Back to the Drawing Board

Trying to keep work in the door on a consistent basis is a never ending challenge.  Perhaps it’s helpful to state the obvious; that is, there isn’t a solution that will solve your business development challenges “once and for all.”  This challenge is what keeps us reinventing and redefining who we are as a company.

Apple is an excellent example in our current economy. Consider their legacy; Macintosh, iPhone, iCloud, iPad, iTunes – and the new and improved versions (much to the chagrin of the current iPad 2 owners).  Certainly, some tremendous victories and even culturally changing products along the way…but never the end all and be all, because consumers and their demands change and the competition never rests.

But most of us don’t work for Apple and our products and services aren’t all that exciting. Nevertheless, the challenge remains to keep a constant flow of new opportunities coming in.  So when that idea you hatched in the middle of the night actually works (no matter how small)…celebrate it and build on that victory!

As for those middle-in-night ideas that haven’t work (yet), it’s okay because it means you are thinking and trying and you haven’t given up.  And as Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.”
