Paying attention to changes

At first glance, you might think this is a video about climate change.

Maybe it is, but there’s a story about a young, focused entrepreneur here. It’s also a story about making choices when change happens.

Do you choose to sit and watch, or do you decide to adapt and flourish?

In this video, a story is told about a boy who noticed a change in the success of the crops he raised.

Rather than sit and watch, he made changes his family’s business to take advantage of what he saw.

The result? He ignited a new, local industry that saved his family’s economy and perhaps his village’s…simply because he was unwilling to give up, even after getting negative feedback from influential people in his life.

How are you watching for, detecting and adapting to change in your market? Your community?
