“In order to embed true sustainability into the core of a business, entrepreneurs need to be future fit. Successful entrepreneurs work on resolving problems that haven’t even happened yet.”
– Carew Papritz
Adapting to change is important for entrepreneurs. As new generations emerge, consumer needs evolve, and expectations change. The ability to adjust to these shifts is paramount for business success.
Today, the pace of innovation and disruption is accelerating, and change happens faster than ever. Although entrepreneurs are often praised for their ability to think quick, the rapid speed of change often leads to rash decision-making.
According to leadership expert, Carew Papritz, this kind of short-term thinking often undermines a business’s long-term success.
The only constant is change and this particularly holds true in business. Change of any kind can be unsettling because it brings in an element of uncertainty and lack of control. It prompts knee jerk reactions that provide transient relief.
So in the age of accelerated change, how can businesses keep up?
“In order to embed true sustainability into the core of a business, entrepreneurs need to be future fit. Successful entrepreneurs work on resolving problems that haven’t even happened yet…”
…says Paprtiz who encourages people at all levels of a business to think about their legacy. Many new entrepreneurs are cash-starved and looking to save every penny they can, but it is important to remember not to pick the cheapest solution, but the best solution. It’s better to focus on the biggest long term ROI opportunities, even if it requires some short-term working capital to bridge the gap. Getting your organization ‘fit for the future’ should be every leader’s top resolution.
“Thinking about long-term successes and adopting a “future fit” attitude keeps you focused and on your specified path during times of chaos and uncertainty. It will help monetize your business success and create increased revenue opportunities…”
…says Papritz, who has devoted his career to the idea of legacy and long term thinking in both the professional and personal setting. Through his best-selling book, The Legacy Letters, he provides back-to-basic life lessons about the importance of leaving a footprint for future generations.
