Opportunity is everywhere, but nowhere is it more present than in the fleeting grasp of failure. It is indeed fleeting. Be thankful for each opportunity failure creates.

Make people matter - before statistics and trends, algorithms and spreadsheets. People should matter before big data.

Peter Sondergaard, Sr. VP at Gartner, has described big data as the new oil of the 21st Century, and analyzing that data is what keeps the engine running – rich in information, the future can be predicted and thus refined.  I am not sure I agree – I have drug my feet when it comes to espousing the goodness of big data.

Yes, the informational content is valuable, but only if we actually do something about it.

But what her magical logic taught me was that making a mistake was not the end of the world and that there will never be a time in your life when you have to believe, “You can’t get there from here…” You can get anywhere from anywhere. You just need to start.

Maybe we should understand the right definition of Big Data before we demand it and use it. And then make determinations or share opinions based on it.

We are surrounded by opportunity that is often shrouded or buried in a mess of emails or tweets, messages or updates. So how do we solve this very key problem?

Is there a social conundrum for HR? Why do we continue to talk about or deny that social media is a part of business today? It's making a difference and you have to work at it. It isn't easy and not everyone can do it and not everyone is doing it well. Who will suffer in the end? HR is the heart of a business and social media is the heart of communication today. The streams need to cross.
