Three rules for success: Michael Raynor at TEDxUniversity


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIzCjT7Znmc&list=UUsT0YIqwnpJCM-mx7-gSA4Q


 


QUOTATION(S):  “...It reminds us that, in our accelerating, headlong era,  the future presses so close upon us that those who ignore it inhabit not the present but the past ...”    AND  “...The future is not a privilege but a perpetual conquest...”


 


CITATION(S): “...The world has profoundly changed … The challenges and complexity we face in our personal lives and relationships, in our families, in our professional lives, and in our organizations are of a different order of magnitude. In fact, many mark 1989 ─ the year we witnessed the fall of the Berlin Wall ─ as the beginning of the Information Age, the birth of a new reality, a sea change of incredible significance ─ truly a new era ─ Being effective as individuals and organizations is no longer merely an option ─ survival in today’s world requires it. But in order to thrive, innovate, excel, and lead in what Covey calls the new Knowledge Worker Age, we must build on and move beyond effectiveness [long-held assumptions, fallacies and flawed beliefs and faulty conventions]…Accessing the higher levels of human genius and motivation in today’s new reality REQUIRES A SEA CHANGE IN THINKING: a new mind-set, a new skill-set, a new tool-set ─ in short, a whole new habit...”
