Today is June 30th. Half of 2017 is in the books. It’s hard to imagine this because just a little while ago that we were toasting the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017. Time sure flies. As a loyal reader, you have seen my changes from January to now. Some I have made changes while other forces made me change. All in all I have managed to stay balance and keep pressing forward. What to know why? Because I an avid reader in search of new ideas and new ways to approach problems.
One of the books that I have read is Blue Ocean Strategy. This is one of the game-changing business books of this decade! Blue Ocean strategy talks about competitive advantage and red oceans. Red oceans are that color because they have a lot of blood in them. Blood in the form of competing on price, low profit margin or even industry decline. This book stresses the importance of seeing and acting upon industry trends and new technology that could disrupt your industry. How can I apply this to my life you ask?
Look back at these past 6 months. Which situations that you thought were good January 1st that turned into red oceans by today? That’s my reason why you should pick up Blue Ocean Strategy so that your second half of 2017 will be better than your first half. Pick it up in the Marketplace today!
