Will the Metaverse radically transform your business over the next few years?
Is the answer to your increasingly fragile customer relevance to move from being less format-centric to thinking about your operating system as more of a platform?
Would a radical redefinition of the purpose of your physical assets unleash a whole new world of growth potential?
The answers to all the above questions land somewhere between “maybe” and “probably.”
But here’s the thing: you don’t need all the answers right now. Not even close.
What you need is a wider aperture, a willingness to experiment and the foundation to act boldly when the moment strikes. Mostly you need a commitment to either get started or to let it go-at least for now.
Rumination and half measures get us nowhere.
A few years ago I shared a conference keynote stage with innovation expert Jim Carroll. He extolled the audience of retailers to “Think big. Start small. Scale fast.” A couple of weeks ago I was reminded of his words when a speaker at Shoptalk extolled his advice.
True then, true now.
The real question is what are you waiting for?
