Remember You Disrupt

Holly, who cares for her husband, Dave, and joins me for Table Talk on the third Saturday of every month, sent me the following quote:

“The last few decades have belonged to a certain kind of person with a certain kind of mind – computer programmers who could crank code, lawyers who could craft contracts, MBAs who could crunch numbers. But the keys of the kingdom are changing hands. The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind – creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers and meaning makers. These people – artists, inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, big picture thinkers – will now reap society’s richest rewards and share its greatest joys.” ~ Daniel H. Pink, A Whole New Mind

Just a quick reminder that you truly do and will disrupt.
