“All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.”
~ Walt Disney
When the market turns, it is time to roll up your sleeves and for everyone around you to do the same and change with the flow.
It’s time to work both smarter and harder. It’s time to evaluate which resources and services must stay or go. It’s time to consider effectiveness and efficiency as tools of necessity. It’s time to see what bang you can get for the bucks you’ve got. It’s time to review what’s working and what’s not.
Cutting expenses and finding your margin doesn’t necessarily mean slashing quality or delivering less. It does however, demand getting the job done with less money available to do it, and this will create a dynamic tension inside your business.
Change and the speed of change always puts pressure on you to do things better and yet more cost-effectively. Even worse, a quick change can unexpectedly find you doing less and doing it less efficiently. It’s in that moment that you suddenly grasp the true challenge of a change – to do more with less.
While the market changes and flows your organization must change too. A market change can be an opportunity to evaluate, upgrade, and top grade your business, an unsolicited gift of the change and flow of the market.
