Webster defines “adaptable” as capable of becoming adapted. It goes on to give an example “an activities director who’s adaptable to any kind of situation.”
As small business owners we must be adaptable to any kind of situation. Stick it out in business long enough and you will come across many situations in which you must adapt. Being able to adapt can help keep you sane at times.
For me, being adaptable does not mean compromising my core values as a company or as an individual. Is there a difference for you? I’d love to hear about it.
