The Rabbit would spend every morning on his iPad his RSS feed and following the Twitter feed of the experts in his industry. He understood how fast business can change and he was focused not to be left behind. His business would always be ahead of the curve.
Lesson: Business is constantly changing and it is vital for success that entrepreneurs and business owners change with the times, evolve and innovate or it is likely that you will be left behind. In Niccolo Machiavelli’s The Prince, it was written “Whosoever desires constant success must change his conduct with the times.”
