A: Hi, this is Angelina Neglia and I’m here with Scott MacDonald, author of Saving Investa, How an Ex-Factory Worker Helped Save an Iconic Australian Company. In the book, Scott shares 25 lessons learned over his impressive career.
Lesson fifteen is: It’s important to recognize change and get ahead of the curve. Scott, this seems like common sense but why do so many people fail to recognize change?
S: Angie, too many people are focused on the rear view mirror instead of the road ahead. The status quo has its own constituency who benefit by keeping things the way they are, but successful people recognize what is changing around them; they embrace change. They find ways to take advantage. Others lament how things are not as they once were as they watch others pass them by. Look ahead, not backwards.
