We all know that it is Abe Lincoln’s birthday Sunday. Did you know that Charles Darwin was also born on February 12th, back in 1809, the same day as Abe?
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, not the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” – Charles Darwin
Great inspirational quote! I used it in an old post back in 2009 advocating that companies needed to think forward and innovate. I proclaimed that status quo would be the pre-cursor for business failure. Opposed to cutting back on spending, I recommended four areas of investment:
· Join the “Social Media Revolution.”
· Tap into the talented labor pool attributed to high unemployment.
· Invest in organic growth.
· Outsource innovation.
Individually or collectively, I believe these initiatives will pay off two to three years down the road for those businesses that subscribe to a sustainable business model.
Status quo or adapt?
