I was reading an article from LinkedIn a few months ago about Nokia. I’m not sure if Nokia wrote the article or if LinkedIn or someone else did, but the article was in reference to Nokia, the mobile phone brand. It touched me so much and reiterated what I’ve always believed in. Life is always changing and although you can be successful and relevant today, you may not be tomorrow. You always have to upgrade and update your brand, be in the ‘know’ about what is happening around you and your competitors and don’t be afraid of change. Change is inevitable. So having said this, have a read of a very short extract of the article I read.
The advantage you have yesterday, will be replaced by the trends of tomorrow. You don’t have to do anything wrong, as long as your competitors catch the wave and do it RIGHT, you can lose out and fail.
To change and improve yourself is giving yourself a second chance. To be forced by others to change, is like being discarded.
Those who refuse to learn & improve, will definitely one day become redundant & not relevant to the industry. They will learn the lesson in a hard & expensive way.
Don’t be replaced and disregarded!
