Having Your Best Year Ever
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” — Charles Darwin
On a recent visit to Ecuador for Agriflor 2016, I took a side trip to the Galapagos Islands. During that visit, I was reminded of the quote above from Charles Darwin, who made the islands so famous for his research on Natural Selection.
The quote seemed so appropriate to this issue. Having your best year ever implies change and adaptation. Just as Florists’ Review is launching its new inititiatives, so must you.
If you had a bad year, or even if you had a pretty good year, to get better, you must make changes and adapt to the changing global economy. Just as those animals did on the Galapagos Islands when they found themsleves stranded in a new and unfriendly environment — they adapted, or they became extinct.
Similarly, many of us are looking ahead to see what changes we must make in order to survive the new economic climate.
To kick off the year, we’ve dedicated this issue to finding new and innovative paths for the magazine and our readers.
We’ve brought in business consultants, and we’ve asked your successful peers, “How do you become successful in this industry?” We’re sharing those answers with you in hopes that you learn from their success and put it into proactive use in your business.
Every business strategy is unique. Each of us has to find our own way, but that doesn’t mean we have to do it alone.
