“The world has stopped and I feel so bad that I don’t want to talk to anyone. It’s a feeling we’ve all had for the past few months, “he said. Silvia singer, speaking at Money Fest, Mexico’s interactive personal finance festival. “But if there is a crisis, there must be a chance.”

With that phrase, general manager of the Interactive economic museum (MIDE) told us that this is the time to make a change to face the new normal.

“Every museum owes its publicity, but what happens when people cannot walk?” This was the challenge that MIDE faced in March when Sana Distancia’s measures began to halt the spread of COVID-19.

“We had to realize that there was going to be a crisis that was going to last. We had to make changes and start over,” Singer explained as he discussed how MIDE needed to transform its strategy to focus on the digital public. “Now the museum is on the other side of Tacuba 17 in Mexico City. Now it is for everyone inside and outside Mexico who understand Spanish. ”

The MIDE has already opened its doors, but this digital strategy allowed them to change.

In this regard, Silvia gave us the strategy to replicate the success of the MIDE in our business areas.

How can we create a new professional and personal reality?

Pablo Picasso used to say that when the muse of inspiration visits you, it must see you work.

“ship is a creative and at the same time critical act. There are no magical formulas to be transformed and there are many ways. Which is the best? Yours, ”said the general manager of MIDE.
According to experts, in order to develop your own strategy, the following is required:

To be able to observe the environment: “First of all, one has to recognize the possibilities that are outside, understand what is happening, and find out what things or situations require a different solution that works better in this new normal.”

Understand that change is constant: “It sounds obvious, but you need to stay agile and be open to innovation.”

How I reinvent myself

Silvia Singer pointed out that you have to learn to think with a certain structure in order to transform yourself. A simple model that you can follow in your person and in your company is:

1. Think of something that you dreamed and imagined, but with some alternatives on how to achieve it: “I need a clear goal to know where I want to go and what alternatives I have.”
2. Honestly write these alternatives in a notebook detailing the pros and cons of each: “I look for realistic dreams with achievable goals and I agree to be flexible in the method to achieve them.”

3. Be informed so that you can choose an alternative and take the following step: “To be successful, you have to be yourself, but think about what you can improve.”
4. Stand up for what you have chosen and continue: “We all have great desires, but our resources are limited. So you have to make a decision and commit to it. ”

In the end, the MIDE director gave all entrepreneurs who want to change good advice: “You don’t have to endure the process, you have to enjoy it. I am sure that everything will be fine in the end. ”
