To stay relevant and thrive in today’s market and during your entire career, you have to live a life where you consistently reinvent and recommit yourself.
By reinventing, we are talking about staying at the forefront of your industry and doing what it takes to succeed. Whatever got you to where you are today will not necessarily help you achieve greater success. If your current actions were to yield greater results, you would have already achieved them.
Another point is that leading companies and producers never rest on their laurels. They know that people are always looking to knock them off their perch. This is why anytime they reach new heights or create a new invention, they immediately consider their actions and inventions obsolete and start working on new innovations. This way when competition finally catches up to them, they are always in front looking back and saying “done that, been there—-look up here and catch us if you can”.
My mother, Miriam Menn Karr, survived throughout here entire career as a senior executive of Chase Bank by looking for new ways to stay relevant and invaluable to her company. She did this later on in her career by creating a counter trade group that helped South American countries export their products and services. This innovative idea helped create funds that were used to write-down third world debt held by the bank. Now that is being relevant and valuable.
In order to reinvent oneself, one has to constantly recommit themselves to their mission, goals and passion. Without recommitment, we fall victim to resting on our laurels and taking it easy.
Its time to reinvent and recommit yourself. And keep doing this on a daily basis. It is the price one needs to pay for staying at the top of one’s game.
