We are living through one of the most profound periods of transformation in recent human history. Our world is changing at an unprecedented rate. The way we live, the way we work and the way we do business are changing dramatically.
No longer is it an option to maintain our position by doing today what we did yesterday. We are no longer competing with the professional or the firm down the road, but rather, the highly skilled, more motivated, and lower cost individual or firm on the other side of the planet. In order to do well in the future, we must begin to think more like entrepreneurs than employees, take responsibility for our quality of life, upgrade our skills and become more aware of the value we add to our teams, our projects, and our organizations.
Whether you are from Cape Town, Adelaide, Wellington, Hong Kong, Glasgow, Singapore, Milan or Albuquerque, the changes that are occurring affect us all. Sure, you can decide to ignore what is happening, to live and work the same way today as you have in the past. However, you could be missing out on the biggest opportunity of this generation and be rendered obsolete, redundant and find yourself standing on the sidelines.
