The prevailing conviction is that the current status quo can always be improved.
Whether we’re following or leading change, “managing change” is woven through the fabric of every day. New technology & new methods are empowering us to be more efficient, more accurate, and more effective but how about the down side? Well, there is certainly lots that can be written and “rushing into change” has more casualties than success stories. Staying with our time tested practices of evaluating, and carefully analyzing new solutions and opportunities in an intentional & deliberate way is more important than ever.
As we consider what the next 25 years of technology might bring, it’s the human ‘agent’ element that I believe will bring the most satisfaction and reward.

Perhaps the most important step though is the last one – “teach one”. There are two big benefits to this. You start the cycle all over again, setting someone else on their path to learning but the value to you in teaching someone cannot be overlooked. Through the act of teaching, you will need to understand the task at a much deeper level to properly articulate your thoughts and answer questions that you’ve never considered before.
Through personal experience, I’ve discovered that teaching others has caused me to ask questions that I’d not considered before and in doing so, I’ve connected experiences and thoughts that have lead me to some creative and unexpected ideas. The exercise is so worthwhile. Don’t ever be so busy that you don’t have the time to pass on your experience to others.
After all, someone else did it for you.
We’ve all got the capacity within us. What will you see, and do, and teach today?
