“Be stubborn on vision and flexible on journey.” -Noramay Cadena
Read, Learn, and Act…
When it comes to the future of work, there are two equally important trends that everyone should know, yet few people are aware of. They are:
Half-Life Of Knowledge: The rate at which knowledge is becoming outdated is predictable and growing exponentially…
Law Of Increasing Learning: Professionals en masse across the world are increasing how much time they put toward learning…
The future is always arriving — every day, all around the world. Sometimes it comes in the form of a thought in the mind of a lone inventor. Other times it comes as an idea for positive change at a startup or business. No matter who we are, thoughts that could become the future flash into our mind every day. It is our duty to filter the thoughts into those we don’t want and those we do, and cling to the thoughts that can make us (and others) mission-driven.
“We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing. Action always generates inspiration. Inspiration seldom generates action.” — Frank Tibolt
