Unusual is the opposite of usual, thanks to the prefix un, meaning not. Unusual things are noteworthy You do not see them every day. A dog chasing a cat is usual, a cat chasing a dog is also usual but none of them chasing anyone would be unusual. Unusual can mean strange and bizarre, or just things that are rare. If someone is always absent, showing up would be unusual. Most surprising things are unusual.
Same goes with businesses. Just think what might have inspired you to start your own business. What was the first thought that had popped up in your mind Was. it about the money that you were going to make out of your business or the layout of your office setup. I guess none of them. Well the first thing that strikes every businessman’s mind is the idea. The idea over finding the one thing that you would be known for, the one thing that you could say yours.
The business unusual mantra may have meant different things to different people depending on a number of variables and other factors, not to forget one’s political school of thought and beliefs. But business unusual is not easy. Doing things differently get people hot under the collar, and for good reasons. It requires a letting go of long held beliefs and making space for new ways of doing things.
If we fast forward to today, we live in a world where challenges to preparing for the future means capitalizing on growing trends while safeguarding against potential hazards.
An extraordinary mission necessitates an extraordinary commitment with extraordinary sacrifice. Business as usual will never create unusual, life transforming, world changing results. The times demand an unusual commitment to an unusual task.
The waves of change may force us to think and act to start looking on the positives. These times teach businesses to adapt themselves to even the worst coming challenges. Remember all the case studies we have been asked to solve during our semesters on on how you would act to certain situations. And we used to come up with different yet perfect solutions. Forward-thinking leaders can run better organizations by creating conditions on how to deploy resources to help others, to motivate staff to cope with change, to expand IT infrastructure and create a sustainable business during adversity.
A problem is a chance for you to do your best.
