In organizations where a new concept or new initiative has to be implemented, a concept of leading change management is often discussed. During the change management often the term “Paradigm shift” is thrown around. The other day we were discussing the topic of paradigm shifting, examples were quoted how smart phones changed the paradigm, once Nokia was the biggest player in the market, and then how the smart touch phones, iphone, samsung galaxy etc came into the market and nearly drove the previous market giant back into the dark woods. Anyhow, this is a good paradigm shift.
But I think another example that we can all relate to is how we measure our “business” these days. There was a time when people used to say I’m too busy to exercise, to play sports, even to watch tv, too busy to “go hang out with friends!” But the other day a friend of mine told me in a sad voice, “I am so busy these days, I can’t even find the time to log once into facebook!”. There you have it, facebook is the perfect example of paradigm shift, not to mention a perfect example of a start-up business. There were other social network before facebook too, like Orkut, but the popularity gained by facebook is unmatched and it has no doubt become a very important part of our social lifestyle. Today whether we were able to sign in on facebook or not, and the time we spent on facebook really determines how busy we are, it is the criteria of our Business. As facebook means Going out, without having to go out! If we can’t spend time with our friends on facebook today, we are “really” very busy!
The purpose is to remind us all, that no matter how busy we are, what ever little time we can find, try to get out of your homes and spend some quality time hanging out with family and friends ! This is one paradigm that should never shift!
On that note, we would like to invite you to join us on our facebook page also, https://www.facebook.com/Sneakpeek2013 🙂
