Restructuring your strategy: An economic imperative

I’ve been speaking and traveling a little more of late and the economic discussions continue monopolize discussions. Been busy on a bunch of things, but a common theme of the discussions I’m having is “what worked 90 days ago doesn’t work today” or “Differentiation today is different than last year – the market have moved to X in the last year”.

While the system outlined below is little overly diagrammed, the 10 steps are spot on. Thanks oukearts!

The big question

There are a great deal of things to learn, but this is pretty much one of the quintessential questions/realities:

Some people are consumers by nature; they consume vast quantities of knowledge purely for learning’s sake. Others are producers; they consume knowledge with the intent of one day acting on the knowledge and producing something, be it a book, a song, a blog, a startup, etc… Neither is better than the other.

The key is to answer one question: which are you?
