Are you Becoming Obsolete? Innovate Don't Iterate – Chris Do

Do you fear change? Are you on the verge of being obsolete? Do your skills and services match up to the needs of the market? How can you innovate in your business and thrive in your industry?

If you want to innovate, you have to be prepared to fail. Run towards your fear, if you want to experience the most growth. Those who fear change, and don’t deal with it head-on, are the ones who die out and become obsolete in the market.

Blockbuster, Kodak, and Tower Records – once leaders in their market have now become obsolete. Operating the same way, and not challenging the status quo is complacency. This way of thinking, ignoring the movement in the marketplace and technology is a quick way to go the way of the dinosaurs.

The most innovative companies seek out the gaps in their market and find the opportunities to deliver a better experience or product, to improve the lives of their customers.
