Stagnant Means Game Over

“Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone.”

My LBG buddy was sharing this page of the book to me. The above quote is so true that we can only grow if stretch outside of comfort zone else it is status quo or stagnant which means game over in this fast pace decade. Everything change so fast nowadays, a company which is the market leader can be no one in the future if they do not adapt to the latest trend. A good example is Nokia, which used to be a market leader in the mobile phone industry. Today they are no one, today it is Apple and Samsung that is leading.

It also applies to the individual, our skillsets can be obsolete with technology, especially disruptive technology. Look at how Uber has disrupted the taxi industry and Airbnb on the hotel industry.

Even the cloud phenomenon can disrupt all the old on-premise technology, which means the skillsets of the resources can be obsolete, the company can out of business if they are stagnant. But it also provides a new opportunity for many that go with the trend. New leaders will emerge.

TAKE ACTION NOW, it is a high risk if we are stagnant.
