One way to make sure no one reads a blog post is to publish it late on a Friday afternoon.
And even better, have that post be an esoteric, academic brain bender.
Check and Check 🙂
But before you close this window out, shut down your computer and otherwise skedaddle, take this with you into the weekend.
“In a few hundred years when this history of our time will be written from a long term perspective, it is likely that the most important event historians will see is not technology is not the internet, is not e-commerce. It is an unprecedented change in the human condition. For the first time – literally—in substantial and rapidly growing numbers, people have choices. For the first time, they will have to manage themselves. And society is totally unprepared for it.”
Holy Cats that’s deep. (Actually I never say “Holy Cats”. One of my smart colleagues in Minnesota does though when her mind gets blown, so I thought it was appropriate).
The quote is Peter Drucker as retold in a superb book I am reading by George MeKeown called Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less.
Get the book.
- It’s not about doing less work; it’s about doing the right work.
- It’s not about just making choices; it’s about making them so nobody else makes them for you.
- It’s not about process and practice and structure; it’s about valuing time to think, even time to sleep.
- It’s not about prioritization; it’s about priority.
I don’t do the book content justice in this short post and truthfully, I haven’t even finished reading it ( but it is sooo good) ; suffice to say go get the book and have a Holy Cats moment or two.
Till next time,
Grow The Business.
