Entrepreneurs should learn to dance in the rain


There are so many uncertainties all around us. A few days back it was about FDI in retail, next up is whether India will to be able to redeem some lost pride by leveling the India – England series and so on. It’s easy to get bogged down by the uncertainties and the challenges that the external environment poses. It seems much easier to postpone decisions, big and small; expecting and praying that clouds of uncertainties and the storm of challenges will pass by, leaving us in a much better and tranquil state to up the threads of life. However, it doesn’t always happen like that. Author, Artist, Speaker, Entrepreneur Vivian Greene once said:

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass… It's about learning to dance in the rain

One of the places where Greene’s adage is applicable is the constantly evolving business environment. Almost all business leaders across the world will agree that things are going to become more complex in the coming days. Market conditions, research & development, new product launches, hiring right people, access to capital and markets are all going to become more difficult and will definitely cost more in the future. So, if you have an idea, which you think, can change the world and your life, there’s no better time to set sail. The right thing to do will be to let your business adjust to the environment and be agile and responsive to changing dynamics in the marketplace.
