I’m not sure about all of you, but it seems to me like society is moving at 100 miles an hour. We connect, trade and communicate all in the click of a button. Globalization and technological innovation are two driving forces which keep the globe spinning at full speed. Nowadays, an individual can no longer simply keep up with their surroundings to survive in the world of business. Instead, society demands that we are ahead of the game, adopting the trends of today while innovating the ideas of tomorrow…
For me, the video above by Mindrelic (amazing NYC time-lapse btw.) is a symbolic representation of the world in which we find ourselves. In a recovering global economy, I’m comforted by the words of Albert Einstein who reassures us that “in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” So be not discouraged my friends, wether graduation is on the horizon or the continued pursuit of that ever elusive “perfect career,” success is in your hands. It hinges on the ability to adapt to your surroundings, coupled with hard work, and the courage to seize the opportunities before us.
So where do we go from here? Well, I’ll leave you with the words of Q senior:
“Our business in life is to change the world. Make it a better place, because our thinking reshape’s markets and our action creates new products that develop and expand markets. It demands extraordinary discipline and determination to achieve this, but it is easy for those who know their life’s purpose”
The formula is simple: “What am I good at + What I love = What I should be doing”
