We are living through the age of disruption. You can’t do big things if you’re content with doing things a little better than everyone else or a little differently than how you did them before. Albert Einstein put it brilliantly: “Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” Some unknown Texas genius put it simply: “If all you ever do is all you’ve ever done, then all you’ll ever get is all you ever got.” These two bits of timeless wisdom capture the spirit of the times in which we work, compete, and lead.
In this HCI Keynote, Bill Taylor, Author and Co-founder of Fast Company explains that, in an era of hyper-competition and non-stop dislocation, the only way to stand out from the crowd is to stand for something special.
