Blast from the past & looking ahead
Posted June 24, 2014on:
In January this year, I received this Whatsapp message from an old varsity friend wishing me a belated birthday.
A little over half my lifetime ago, I used to lead a motley study group. I am not sure what I said or did back then, but it is flattering to think that I was ahead of Gladwell. I was not.
Concepts and principles float everywhere in the theoretical and practical space. The people that become experts, gurus, or entrepreneurs are the ones that make the connections and find ways to sell their ideas.
If I am good at anything at all it must be thinking and doing far ahead. I am comfortable with change and I design for serendipity. Sometimes this puts me ahead of my time and context.
That is my place and this is my function in life. It is what gives me fulfillment and joy.
