I’m Too Busy

In our hectic business life, too often we overlook an opportunity because “we’re too busy.”  Is it that we’re too busy — or we have not prioritized correctly?

As a business CEO, or senior decision maker, we cannot afford to become bogged down with “stuff” that’s repetitious in nature, or which can be readily delegated – no matter how good we are with it, or how much we like it.  As a C-level exec or company owner, we need to be searching and exploring, or to put it in Trekkie terms, “to boldly go where no one has gone before.”

The world around us is changing so rapidly that if we don’t take the time to explore the shifting dynamics of communications, we could find ourselves marooned on a desert island.  So, take the time to read that online article you’ve been ignoring; listen to that webinar; spend time with the supplier who wants to talk about new technology; attend one of our Association Quick Take programs, or even take a trip to Chicago this fall and explore McCormick Hall (GraphExpo).  I’ll close with one of my favorite quotes.

In times of change, learners inherit the earth; while the learned are beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.
