There’s a whole lot of shit that you can’t control, but you can control how you respond to it. Adaptability is more than simply rolling with the punches — it’s about being able to calmly, intelligently and readily respond to circumstances. As a business owner, it’s important for you to be able to collect yourself and take control of whatever situation your way. A self-sustaining business is one that is proactive. Don’t wait for all the chips to fall before reacting.
But keep your eyes on the prize
Keep your long-term goals in mind, as they’ll help you to respond to situations in ways that keep you on your path and aligned with your aspirations.
It seems to me that an important key to running a self-sustaining, organic business is to strategically adapt to the world around you. Figure out what you want and constantly make natural adjustments in your business that support those goals.
On your path, keep your head up, take note of what’s around you and what’s changing. Being proactive about responding to changes will remove potential obstructions before they are realized.
