Thinking outside the box: Be open to doing things differently with your business

OPINION: Many years ago I read a very helpful book on business.

It said that no matter what you are doing right now, you should assume there is always a better way of doing it.

It also pointed out that unless you are open to the idea that there is a better way to do something you will usually not see it.

Most people in business do not look for a better way to do things because they are trapped in their own box and their own box is how they ‘normally’ do business.

Online Customers A New Trend Amid Pandemic?

Chipotle created a new type of restaurant Wednesday, but guests can’t sit and eat at this new “ghost kitchen.”

The California-based Mexican food chain has a new location to only offer pickup and delivery options after online orders became the new normal during the pandemic. 

The Chipotle Digital Kitchen’s first location opened over the weekend in Highland Falls, New York. The company wants to increase sales in “nontraditional locations,” according to the Washington Post.

“The Digital Kitchen incorporates innovative features that will complement our rapidly growing digital business while delivering a convenient and frictionless experience for our guests,” Chipotle’s chief technology officer Curt Garner said.

“With digital sales tripling year over year last quarter, consumers are demanding more digital access than ever before,” he continued. 

Everything in the restaurant will be normal, except for the fact that customers can’t go in and order, nor can they sit down. Customers will

A relatively quiet week of college football led to little movement in the latest Associated Press poll, setting up plenty of drama as the season nears its end. 

The biggest story of the week was the spread of COVID-19 leading to postponements in the SEC and canceled games in the Big Ten. It left teams like Alabama, Ohio State and Texas A&M inactive while Clemson already had a scheduled week off.

The teams that did play mostly lived up to expectations, with Notre Dame and Florida each winning by double digits.

Here is how Saturday’s action shaped the latest Top 25 going into Week 12.

Law360 (November 13, 2020, 2:52 PM EST) — Kelley Kronenberg LLP and an Italian attorney have settled claims that the firm bungled the attorney’s visa to work in the U.S. then neglected to pay him for nine months of work while living abroad.

Dustin Johnson breaks scoring record in Masters win

By the time Smith, marching up the 15th fairway, looked back and saw that it was Johnson who was close to the pin on the 14th green, it was all but over. Smith frowned and looked down at the grass, Johnson made the six-foot putt, and the lead was five strokes with four holes remaining.

This rain-delayed, pandemic-delayed Masters was essentially over. Was Johnson’s arrival on this stage, the green jacket ceremony in Butler Cabin, also delayed? Not really. Before Woods, it was widely accepted that golfers peaked in their 30s. By that metric, Johnson is right on time.

This is what he had in mind all those years ago when he honed his game at Weed Hill driving range in Columbia, South Carolina, just an hour or so from Augusta National. Johnson knew of the special tournament just down the road, even if he never had the connections to
