It’s an understatement to say that today’s world is moving fast. New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Thomas Friedman, wrote about how the world has become a level playing field in his book, The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century.
In it, Friedman described the perpetual shift required for countries, companies, and individuals to remain constantly competitive in an ever-growing global market where historical and geographical divisions are becoming increasingly irrelevant. Yet, unbelievably, Friedman wrote the book before Uber, Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter ever existed.
Today’s entrepreneurs and their employees are faced with a new requirement in today's constantly changing and evolving business world: the ability to learn, unlearn, and relearn — fast! In honor of that, we hope these quotes give you a moment to breathe but also inspire you to move faster.
