“A luxury, once enjoyed, becomes a necessity.” -Northcote Parkinson

“First, the world is changing.  It’s not a good thing or a bad thing.  But your life is going to change with it.  94% of the 15 million jobs created in the past eight years are either part-time or freelance.  The job landscape is changing.  Corporatism, which ruled the world for 100 years, is ending.  Technology and necessity have taken each industry, destroyed it, and then created 1,000 new and different ways to succeed in it.  Understanding what is new in the world is the LAST step in reinvention though.

Every day we are reinventing.  A river doesn’t stay still.  Every time you step into it, it’s a different river.  You and I are that river.  We either move forward or we freeze like ice.” -James Altucher
