Start now, don't delay

G'day!

Welcome back to DB Digital. Briefly covering Digital Strategy, Product Development and Personal Improvement.

Digital Strategy ➔ Start now, don’t delay

You don’t need to have a strategy kick-off aligned to a calendar milestone.

I’m not saying no to deadlines, deadlines are important. But we don’t need to delay starting to align to a date like New Year's Day.

If you missed January 1, it's ok. You can still start. Start now, don't delay for Q2 or another arbitrary date.

The longer you wait to act on your idea, the probability of success decreases.

What idea are you stuck on? For the month of January you can email me to talk about your idea for free - whether it be more developed thoughts, a project plan or an offering approach.

Product Development Create digital variations.

Digital products are great. They can be fluid. If your systems don't allow you to create new products or variations to test whenever you want, with low effort, you need new systems.

The ability to quickly experiment with variations streamlines innovation and enhances adaptability to market changes. Embracing the potential of digital product variations empowers businesses to remain agile, responsive, and leaders in their industries.

Create variations for; different niche/target audience, industry specific functionality, localisation, design elements, pricing model, emerging technology innovation, collaborations or partnetships.

Personal Improvement Read to get better.

Reading does wonders for us. It broadens our horizons by exposing us to diverse perspectives and cultures. It helps us understand things from different viewpoints.

Reading is a workout for the brain. It challenges our thinking and problem-solving skills. Different genres pushes our minds, makes us sharper and more adept at tackling challenges.

Reading provides a break. It offers a chance to unwind and find inspiration. So, not only does it fill our minds with knowledge, but it also contributes to our overall well-being, keeping us balanced and focused.
