13 Nov Legacy Business Solutions Compares Racing to Business Success
You might wonder how racecar drivers manage to go 200 miles per hour without losing control. They say that the only way to do it is to focus on the horizon – they can’t focus on the tracks or their competitors because those things are moving too fast. Here at Legacy Business Solutions, we think elite business minds work the same way. They keep their long-term visions clear while conquering the obstacles directly before them.
Business innovators mirror racecar drivers in the way they scan the periphery and pinpoint issues before they arise. Creative professionals also look around the edges for developing trends and potential investments. At Legacy Business Solutions, we see Robin Chase as a prime example of this. In 2001, she had the notion that mobile technology could be used to encourage a new model of car usage. Her pay-as-you-go method of sharing cars was the progenitor of emerging companies such as Airbnb and Uber, and she sold her company, Zipcar, to Avis for $500 million.
Racecar drivers don’t waste time thinking about their last races, and innovators likewise avoid nostalgia. They learn quickly from mistakes and move on to their next challenges, just as a driver must do when his or her car gives out during a big race. Creative businesspeople also don’t glorify past successes. They know they must keep pressing forward to sustain excellence.
We at Legacy Business Solutions recommend pursuing your professional goals like a racecar driver eyeing the horizon.
