Today’s challenging business environment means everyone is short-staffed and under the pump. Pushed to their limits, it’s very hard for business owners to be innovative and challenge the status quo, when they’re constantly “fire-fighting”.
Often, CEOs or CFOs are too close to the business, too deeply immersed in the day-to-day grind, that they can’t take a much-needed pause to see the forest through the trees.
At MEC Mining, we often hear the tired phrases “we’ve always done it that way” and “we’ve tried that before and it didn’t work”.
It’s imperative businesses understand that being courageous with ideas is what separates the companies looking to maintain the status quo versus those who are looking to lead the pack.
There’s no doubt that the business environment has changed – investors and business operators alike are more risk-averse – but we must maintain the charge for innovation and challenge and change, for the better.
Just because something hasn’t worked before, doesn’t mean it won’t come to fruition in the future. And by bringing in a fresh set of eyes like MEC, you can often much more clearly see multi-million opportunities you may not have been able to pinpoint on your own.
