A Lesson on Adapting to Changing Environments

Since the pandemic arrived, it became clear that we cannot plan too far in advance because we don’t know what will happen in the next few months. It is for this reason that your business cannot remain stagnant and the first step in adapting to changing environments is realising that what worked yesterday, might not work today. 

With the COVID-19 virus came a major global lockdown and this included businesses. While many businesses, unfortunately, became collateral damage to controlling the spread of the virus, there are many that managed to make it through and survive. There’s a reason for this! We’re not shaming businesses that had to close their doors because, in many instances, it came down to luck or private funding or ideas to stay open that simply weren’t realistic. However, there are businesses that managed to adapt to a changing economic environment, demonstrating quick thinking and superb leadership from those at the top. A quote by Albert Einstein encompasses this perfectly:

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used to create them”.

Obviously, many problems facing many businesses currently were caused by the pandemic and not anything that they did wrong, but there is something to be said of thinking outside the box in a time like this. How are you, as a business owner, going to make use of your existing resources to stay strong? What are you going to change to adapt to current times? What parts of your businesses no longer fit the model of an evolving and volatile environment?


These questions are incredibly important to consider as 2021 goes on. Hone in on your strategies now so that you are braced for change. Consider automating parts of your business so that you can focus on revenue-generating strategies, and evaluate your current status as a leader.
