I read a quote the other day that went something like this, “revolution is the replacement of the seemingly perfect by the seemingly impossible.”
The record business was almost the perfect business, new records, new artists, and new sales; seemed like it could go on forever.
Then digital hit and the perfect business became revolutionized never to be that perfect again.
Once upon a time, the bowling business was the perfect business, a product that appealed to every demographic segment in urban and suburban areas across the country and around the world.
Then competition happened. Disney land happened. Entertainment options happened, restaurants happened, affordable travel happened and we made barely a move, still clinging to our once perfect business.
Oh, we created automatic scoring, and a few other doodads, but we haven’t stretched yet to create the seemingly impossible.
Not nearly as far as we can. Not even close.
That’s up to you.
