“Don’t make resolutions. Make transformations” – Futurist Jim Carroll
Some years back as the year drew to a close, I wrote a blog post, “10 Great Words.” The intent was to provide some motivational guidance as to how to think and act in the coming year year.
It was a hit! To this date, remains one of the busiest pages on my Web site. There have been a few more similar posts along the way.
I think such lists are helpful for people, as they help us to think about the many unique trends and issues that surround us. With that in mind, here are my words for 2017. They are based on an assessment both of what we have been through in 2016, but with thoughts as to what we might face in the year to come.
“Surround yourself with optimists. Always ignore the pessimists” – Futurist Jim Carroll
“The only thing worse than a bad idea is having no idea at all” – Futurist Jim Carroll
“Think fast. Act faster!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
“In 2017, organizations will have to figure out how to innovate and move forward in a new era of destructive, impulsive unpredictability!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
