“This is a time of ‘commitment enormity:’ each and every day, you must challenge yourself to keep moving forward to accomplish something, not backwards and achieve nothing!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
If you find yourself in new and ‘interesting’ career circumstances – ie. at home, your previous career in a massive moment of uncertain pause – you probably have been struggling through each and every day. To focus, to try to get things done, to stick to some sort of plan…let alone have an actual plan!
That’s certainly been the case with me. I’ve tried to maintain some semblance of normal, when quite clearly that normal will not reappear for quite some length of time – if it ever reappears in the same form at all.
An innovator without innovation is an anachronism; a motivational speaker without motivation is not a great concept; a futurist without a future to talk about is beyond being an oxymoron.
That’s why I decided and committed to the idea that staring this week, every Thursday at 1130AM Toronto, Ontario Canada time, I’m gong to go online with a live broadcast. Titled Disrupting the Big Disruption: Jim Carroll’s Weekly Review of Leadership and the Big Realignment.
Here’s what I’ll cover:
“Based on an extensive weekly news, literature and leadership review, Jim will offer up his insight into what REAL companies and REAL leaders are doing RIGHT NOW to reinvent themselves for our next future, how they are responding to our existing future, and the lessons we can learn from their ACCELERATED LEADERSHIP.
In summary, the things that I’ve seen through my research as to how companies and leaders are trying to move forward – instead of back.
My most powerful tool compared to my peers, I believe, has always been my ability to dig deep, do the research, find the stories. For close to 35 years, I’ve been using a powerful (and expensive) online tool that lets me research millions of articles, tens of thousands of information sources, thousands of topics.
Over the weekend, I started to hone in on some cool stories of what some people have been doing to prepare for our next economy. People who aren’t standing still but who are moving forward. I think it is important to share their stories, because it might help you to move forward, not back.
Will you join me?
