Leaders Take Imaginative Leaps

So, every­thing at Net­flix is per­fect, right? Time to sit back and just let the river of prof­its flow, right? Wor­ry about the future of Net­flix? Waste of time. Its future is guar­an­teed. Right? For­get all that. Lead­ers are always think­ing about the future. It’s their #1 job to be able to answer (or, at least, try to answer) the core ques­tion: What’s next?

Learn more. Dream more. Give more. Grow more.

Most peo­ple yearn to con­tribute, make the world a bet­ter place and have suc­cess… all at the same time.… Make sure to give your busi­ness a back­ground, a mis­sion and a sto­ry. That might be the most impor­tant step part of any ven­ture. And remem­ber, giv­ing may be the best invest­ment you ever make.” (Blake Mycoskie)

The Kinetic Entrepreneur

In archi­tec­ture, the most overused word today seems to be “icon­ic”. In busi­ness, the word is “entre­pre­neur”. That’s not sim­ply because a Google search of the word yields 217 mil­lion results. I say that because I have heard the word simul­ta­ne­ous­ly applied to peo­ple such as Steve Jobs and Elon Musk, peo­ple who invest dol­lars in a pre-pack­aged “star­tup” (such as a new sand­wich shop) and peo­ple engaged in a lean star­tup inside Gen­er­al Elec­tric or some oth­er major, estab­lished cor­po­ra­tion.

New Next Now (October 2016)

A new break­through in micro­ro­bot­ics might just change the way we take our med­i­cine, reports Lyn­da Delacey (@LJDelacy) for @nwtls. Sci­en­tists at the Daegu Gyeong­buk Insti­tute of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­o­gy (DGIST) in South Korea have devel­oped micro­scop­ic robots that can enter the blood­stream and admin­is­ter med­i­ci­nes to pre­cise areas of the body with lit­tle or no side effects.

Keeping The Spirit of Peter Drucker Alive

I first encoun­tered Drucker’s think­ing in 1979 when I was an under­grad stu­dent in the US. “There is noth­ing so use­less,” Druck­er once said, “as doing effi­cient­ly that which should not be done at all.” That kind of think­ing res­onat­ed with me then, and now. It will nev­er go out of style.

Star Trek: Beyond The Final Frontier

Think­ing of the age-old debate about whether life imi­tates art or art imi­tates life, my sense is that, either way, both begin with human imag­i­na­tion. The bot­tom line is that once the human imag­i­na­tion is sum­moned, and direct­ed to a point some­where in the future, it changes out­comes. Is that not use­ful for lead­ers in the 21st cen­tu­ry?
