Disruption – Change Perdicted Outcomes

Posted on: June 24, 2013


In lieu of transitions at work and new responsibilities I’ve found myself varying in feeling excited for new achievements and intimidated by the enormous role I find myself undertaking. This morning I was feeling another rush of anticipation for Monday challenges, however while sipping my homemade white chocolate mocha before work, I realized I had yet to crack open the new issues of Entrepreneur magazine.

The Editor’s Note is one section I always read, this month it is titled “Rebel Yells” and goes on to throw a positive spin on disruption in business. As Editor in Chief, Amy C. Cosper says:

Disruption in business is a heady concept…when you disrupt something, you change the predicted outcomes.

Which is good right? Disruption in the form of positive change serves to bring the wow factor into your presentation, project and/or organization. The culture of change is a scary concept to accept because of the risks involved, who knows what will happen? Although as Amy says:

Staying true to your own mission is as important as changing someone else’s. If you surprise and delight your customers, that may be the only disruption you need.

So here’s to disruption, I know my last month has been beyond my imagination, but I truly love what I do and waking up every day to rise to the Challenge and create positive change makes every day completely worth it.

How are you creating positive disruption?

My latest disruption was scrapping the online story I’d devoted so much energy to, taking a few weeks away from it, and bringing it back in a new form. It was scary, but worth it.

That is amazing and very brave, it definitely causes disruption but I’m sure your story will be much better after you stepped away and reassessed.

Thank you! The response thus far after one installment indicates that it’s better. That makes me feel better because I felt like I was doing a disservice to my readers.

Don't be shy, share your thoughts!
