12 Great Quotes On Rejuvenation

Whether you are in the north­ern or the south­ern hemi­sphere, Sep­tem­ber seems to be a month that fore­tells not only a change of sea­sons but also pos­si­bly big­ger changes as well. Per­son­al changes. For every New Year’s res­o­lu­tion that I have made, it is often the deci­sions made sev­er­al months ear­li­er than Jan­u­ary 1 that seem to have made the greater changes in my life. What hits me is that Sep­tem­ber is a month of reju­ve­na­tion! So allow me to share a dozen quotes that I find insight­ful, but most of all, refresh­ing!

Best Summer Reads 2018

It’s ele­men­tary: “The more that you read, the more things you will know,” Said Dr. Sesuss. “The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” August and Sep­tem­ber are great months to exhale and do some mind-stretch­ing via a few great books. Here are five 2018 releas­es that I high­ly rec­om­mend.

The New Language of Entrepreneurs

The new matrix frame­work that we are design­ing as both a con­cept and as an assess­ment tool enables peo­ple to find their start­ing point as an entre­pre­neur. It’s no longer a bina­ry mat­ter: that you are or are not an entre­pre­neur. Our new approach makes entre­pre­neur­ship like a lan­guage of moves to be mas­tered and used in dif­fer­ent com­bi­na­tions in dif­fer­ent sit­u­a­tions.

The Death of Time

The real­i­ty is that those who are grow­ing up with Instant Reply tech­nol­o­gy have no rec­ol­lec­tion of any­thing dif­fer­ent. For these, shall we call them “dig­i­tal natives”, the phys­i­cal world is bro­ken sim­ply because it does not move at the speed of their dig­i­tal lives. I see over and over with would-be entre­pre­neurs whose start-up ideas are designed to “fix” some­thing in the phys­i­cal world that is “just too slow”.

To Do Or Not To Do?

I rec­og­nize myself in the bul­let points pre­sent­ed by the author. Often, when I feel that my work and per­son­al life has become a web of per­plex­i­ty, I often think of that sports­wear ad that advis­es, “Just do it.” Only, in my head, I say to myself, “Just do some­thing!” Not doing some­thing seems like a dere­lic­tion of my duty as a human being. Or, as Steven and Diana note when they describe how inac­tion feels, most times, for most peo­ple. “It is nat­ur­al to asso­ciate Not Doing with…”

In Sports, Big Data Is A Big Pain

As some­one who was raised to appre­ci­ate the psy­chol­o­gy of the game of base­ball, any automa­tion of the game hurts. To my mind, big data and ana­lyt­ics mat­ter, yet often a base­ball player’s per­for­mance is affect­ed more by human inputs such as emo­tion. Noth­ing can boost a hitter’s bat­ting aver­age than a home cooked meal or a vis­it from fam­i­ly or friends.

Coming: History’s Longest Unemployment Line?

In no way do I want to dis­count the work­place trau­ma that is here to stay as com­pa­nies of every size invest in new tech­nolo­gies. The work world is going through major change, and peo­ple will be affect­ed. Yet, my opti­mism remains string that oppor­tu­ni­ties will emerge from these sub­stan­tial threats to our liveli­hoods — if we can think clear­ly and oper­ate today with a fore­sense of what is com­ing tomor­row.

All the tech­nol­o­gy under the sun will not pro­duce pos­i­tive effects in and of itself. Tech­nol­o­gy needs to be accom­pa­nied first by an uncom­pro­mis­ing growth mind­set, one com­mit­ted to the con­tin­u­ous search for cus­tomer val­ue based growth oppor­tu­ni­ties. Then, tech­nol­o­gy needs a spe­cial kind of fuel to super­charge its poten­tial: the human imag­i­na­tion, which allows for a spec­trum of out­comes giv­en the nature and cir­cum­stances of the con­text.

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?

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

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.

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.
