Challenge: Stay hungry and humble; disruption is always around the corner
Just because things are working for you now doesn’t mean they will in the future. Keep learning, growing, and have that ear to the ground. Mastery of a skill is extremely important in stabilizing your process for quality products and services. However, changes in the competitive landscape and how others are learning new ways to do things less expensive, better, faster, or in a more novel ways can quickly obsolete a business model, product, or service. This can be especially disheartening if caught by surprise due to not being tuned into your environment. Continue to perfect your course of action, but always be on the guard for those dynamic shifts.
