In 1865, Lewis Carroll wrote Alice in Wonderland. We would like to use a wonderful quote from the book to express current times: “my dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that”.
We have the feeling that this rapid, somewhat chaotic rate of change will continue forever. As Tom Peters was writing in 1994, “today’s economy is revolving around innovatively assembled brain power, not muscle power“. Don’t be afraid of opening your mind. Intelligence is, without doubt, the great gift bequeathed to humanity. Innovation matters – of course. If we do not change what we offer the world there is a good chance we will not be around very long.
