Art in Business – The key to true innovation

22 Oct


We certainly believe this is the case … Arts in all forms in business can teach the business world discipline, passion, collaboration & partnership, trust, grooming, preparation, commitment, curiosity, repetition, stress management, strategy, diversity, magic & attention to detail. The Arts makes you feel, gives you hope, feeds the soul and creates a Return on Influence (ROI) … which is long-tail advantage in todays business environment.

Yesterday I posted a piece about the traits of successful people that the MW team are studying and analysing closely. We are inspired by the triumph of people who achieve great things in spite of great adversity and resistance. I spoke yesterday about having a plan…a written plan so that clarity in terms of an end goal are clearly articulated. Another characteristic successful people have in common is the fact they are constantly going through the necessary steps to improve themselves. They are learning and reading and going to lectures and listening with the explicit intention of becoming more expert in their particular field. Successful people very often don’t go after money as an end goal. They pursue their passion and expertise with every ounce of their being and money becomes the happy by-product of the value they are able to bring. Most successful people are not satisfied by being good at what they do. They strive continually to be the best. The best they can be, the best product they can offer, the best service they can supply. The message is clear…don’t settle for good…get better and aim for BEST.

When thinking about people we admire in our own industry and others, the MW team have started to identify specific traits that the successful people we hold in such high esteem have in common. Right up there at the top of the list is the fact that successful people constantly define and refine their vision, aim and purpose. If we are going to aim for a dream and really go for it it is our duty as entrepreneurs and personal brand ambassadors to constantly seek clarity in articulating our end goals.  We need to keep revisiting the definition of our vision until we are absolutely clear about what it is  we intend to achieve. How else do we keep on track? If the message you are giving yourself and others is vague or wishy washy there is little chance of manifesting anything specific. So…grab a pen and a notepad and start writing. Write in as much detail as you can possibly manage. Be clear about all aspects. If you intend to build a business with a turnover or 1 million rand a month write that down! If you intend to build  a business with a turn over of 10 million rand a month write THAT down. Be specific. How else do you expect G-d/Source/The Universe or whatever you choose to call the higher intelligence to know exactly what to deliver to you? Ready? Get set…..write!
