Escape the Mundane + Experience the Remarkable

Escalator Temporarily Stairs

Have you ever wondered what would happen when a piece of technology you’ve become familiar with, breaks? How would you react? Do you have a backup plan? Or would you turn into these people:

When building your business, unfamiliar events are bound to happen. There will come times that systems you’ve grown dependent on will let you down. It’s almost a guarantee.

Personally, this happened to me a few days ago. My blackberry crashed. Kaput. D-E-A-D, dead. Worse yet, I had no other backup phone immediately available. And it just so happened that it died shortly after I gave a two-hour social media presentation to a large group of local business people – all potential clients. (In hindsight, I could have temporarily forwarded my number to my Skype account)

I was in hot water. I had learned the hard way that we must be cautious of technology – to tread lightly – as it can disappear at anytime. And believing my phone could never fail me, I didn’t have an alternative option.

The Lesson

Technology won’t always be available. It’s up to you and your team to anticipate and overcome technological obstacles. And it’s those businesses that can adapt who will keep their uptime and maintain their momentum.

Do you have any examples of this? And how did you overcome your tech-downfalls?
