Good Monday morning,
One of the key questions that I hear today is, where are the new opportunities? With the amount of negative news it would seem like there is very little areas in the economy with needs. Ironically, there has never been more questions without answers. In the world around you, professionals and organizations are always looking for the next Ipod, Google, medical miracle or oil project. This week’s podcast is with Gad Shaanan. He is one of Canada’s most successful industrial designers. His firm just won the equivalent of an Oscar within his field – a best of 2007 I.D. award for packaging with his work on the new WD-40 can. Gad said “every single day, thousands of new products and companies are created in the world by professionals who are not waiting for permission from the market”. From reinventing what we have, to coming up with a brand new widget. The world is not a static place, which is what makes this time in our career so exciting. What are you waiting for?
This week, consider what needs “fixing” in your world who knows, the opportunity could be sitting in your garage.
