Some Things Haven’t Changed

Many profit-leading companies have been able to make a profitable adaptation to the industry’s changes. It hasn’t been easy for many of them, but profitable companies seem to have a knack for remaining profitable.

The CEOs that have made the transition don’t understand what all the fuss is about. Even in these challenging times, the top-performers make it look easy. But there are fewer of them.

The CEOs who have adapted successfully don’t have any great flashes of genius. They’re doing many things quite differently than they did a few years ago, but they’re achieving superior results in the same way, by being relentlessly committed to doing all the big and small things that are required.

So the good news and bad news are the same: There’s no cosmic secret for success. All you’ve got to do is focus on what really matters – and stay focused.
