This is Generation Flux: Meet the Pioneers the new (and chaotic) frontier of business

(Career01_12) Food for thoughts

Are you GenFluxer? (or do we need this label? #GenFlux #Career )

Intrigued by topics of careers and those in transition mode as we continue to talk of innovation and future of business. This article I shared via Fast Company hit over 400 clicks (bitly), 50+ RTs + Fav on Twitter after Fast Company retweeted this couple of days ago. Have a moment to read it (also read through comments as well). FYI

In dealing with uncertainties: Few questions to think over.

Which competitive advantages have staying power?
What skills matter most?
How can you weigh risk and opportunity when the fundamentals of your business may change overnight?
But if your business is primed to be adaptable, flexible, and prepared for any shift in the economy, isn't it also primed to be whipsawed by constant change?

To flourish requires a new kind of openness. More than 150 years ago, Charles Darwin foreshadowed this era in his description of natural selection: "It is not the strongest of the species that survives; nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change." As we traverse this treacherous, exciting bridge to tomorrow, there is no clearer message than that. - Robert Safian

How do you survive or thrive in this new time born of technology and globalization?

Thanks Tim J. Morton for your quote via twitter on this inspired this post.
"The comfort of yesterday, complacency of today and ignorance of tomorrow never ceases to astound me"
The future of business is pure chaos. Here’s how you can survive--and perhaps even thrive.

great interview with +David Eckoff and +Marissa Mayer
David Eckoff originally shared:
 
Good morning, G+ friends! Just posted video from my 1:1 interview with Google VP Marissa Mayer. We talk about topics related to innovation, new product development and entrepreneurship.

One of my favorite quotes: "The moment that you start a company is the moment when you won't take no for an answer."

This is from my 2007 interview, so some things like "20% time" have changed. But lot's of knowledge and insight shared that can be applied in any business.

Ello, Ello, #Ello

Let's start with the positives. What you are attempting to accomplish is commanding as I understand few have failed to do so before. To create a "social" network where users feel we are no longer a product. Where users no longer feel controlled by the ads in midst of our conversations. Where users feel free to write, post photos and share without being manipulated. However, how can there be "trust" when you have been backed by VC further claiming that there is no exit strategy? I don't buy it. What exactly is your business model? How will you fund your company further as I clearly do not see how you can afford to keep this going without further monetary help? What happens after potentially million users sign up? As a social media enthusiast and a user, I evaluate based on 1) Validity of your manifesto 2) User friendly and practicality of navigation esp mobile 3) How much I predict things will drastically change in your current policy as your site gets inundated with more users...data data and more data. Where is your transparency? And should I even begin to wonder about privacy as is there a such thing? Is everything really free? Where is the beauty your site attempts to claim? How is it simple? How are we "not" products if the site is already backed by a VC? VC = Exit. VC = Data. VC = Show me the $. I remain skeptical. Also, can you elaborate little more on the friends vs. noise? My first reaction was not so positive one. I can see so much friction and conflicts escalating from these labels. Do we really need to define ourselves that way? I'd figure all users will have to individually define what friends are vs. what noise are. Scoble has done pretty good job defining however there is always a gray area for friction. I thought you wanted to be different. How judgmental can we further get? What I value is this: I value genuine social connections...connections that will create a supportive community rather than speak in silo. I value sharing with like minded professionals...to help, encourage and support one another in whatever we aspire to accomplish. I am curious yet I am not curious enough unfortunately. Ello doesn't believe they are competing with Facebook or any other sites. Some claim that the site is like tumblr and twitter combined or the "new" google+ or even to say Ello competes with Medium? I don't see it. I hear your rant during your interviews via podcasts even via your quotes in various publications and I don't see "that" value just yet. Your premise is value based conversations that will win over privacy and commercialism? All I hope is that your site via your leadership team show the "example" as defined in your manifesto and be more transparent. Until then Ello..Ello...Ello nothing more truly but I wish all the best. Please prove me wrong as my initial gut reaction is to remain skeptical. Thank you for your time and further introducing this "value" based idea.

Parable of Time Management

One day, an expert in time management was speaking to a group of business students and, to drive home a point, used an illustration those students will never forget. As he stood in front of the group of high-powered over-achievers he said, "Okay, time for a quiz" and he pulled out a one-gallon, wide-mouth mason jar and set it on the table in front of him. He also produced about a dozen fist-sized rocks and carefully placed them, one at a time, into the jar. When the jar was filled to the top and no more rocks would fit inside, he asked, "Is this jar full?" Everyone in the class yelled, "Yes." The time management expert replied, "Really?" He reached under the table and pulled out a bucket of gravel. He dumped some gravel in and shook the jar causing pieces of gravel to work themselves down into the spaces between the big rocks. He then asked the group once more, "Is the jar full?" By this time the class was on to him. "Probably not," one of them answered. "Good!" he replied. He reached under the table and brought out a bucket of sand. He started dumping the sand in the jar and it went into all of the spaces left between the rocks and the gravel. Once more he asked the question, "Is this jar full?" "No!" the class shouted. Once again he said, "Good." Then he grabbed a pitcher of water and began to pour it in until the jar was filled to the brim. Then he looked at the class and asked, "What is the point of this illustration?" One eager beaver raised his hand and said, "The point is, no matter how full your schedule is, if you try really hard you can always fit some more things in it!" "No," the speaker replied, "that's not the point. The truth this illustration teaches us is, "If you don't put the big rocks in first, you'll never get them in at all. What are the 'big rocks' in your life, time with loved ones, your faith, your education, your dreams, a worthy cause, teaching or mentoring others? Remember to put these BIG ROCKS in first or you'll never get them in at all. So, tonight, or in the morning, when you are reflecting on this short story, ask yourself this question, "What are the 'big rocks' in my life?" Then, put those in your jar first.
If this inspired you, share with others so they can benefit!

Chopin Etude No. 3, Op. 10

Source: Youtube Maurizio Pollini, #piano #chopin

Etude Op. 10 No. 3, in E major, is a solo piano work composed by Frédéric Chopin. This is a slow cantabile study, in which the right hand must maintain a singing tone in the melody whilst contributing to the accompaniment. This étude differs from most of Chopin's in its tempo. It marks a significant departure from the technical virtuosity required in études before Chopin's time. It concentrates on melodious phrasing and legato ambience of performance more than technical skill. It has been classified as a Tone Poem for piano by some critics, and is highly regarded as a quality manifestation of Chopin's love for Romantic Opera and Poland, where he was born.

Searching for next disruptive emerging tech in mobile, Researching via incorporating Start-up Cebisu Research
Introduction
I'm an entrepreneur, student, recruiter and non-profit advocate who grew up in Asia and US and since 1994 (on/off) I've been using the world wide web exploring different platforms to engage in various of conversations. In mid 2008, I started to use Twitter among other various social media sites to build communities and explore various tribes in the area of recruiting, sourcing, retail and the technology space. Prior to this, I pursued higher education (worked and studied Clinical Psychology (PhD Program 1994-1996) at University of Rhode Island and Brown University and further my training in education at Teacher's College, Columbia (Summer of '97), Harvard University (HUGSE 2000-2001) as well as various of sourcing trainings via (ROI & AIRS - 2007 & 2010) after graduating with a BA in Psychology with studies in Music (Piano & Opera) at State University of New York Binghamton. Both my Senior Thesis and Masters Thesis studies were in the areas of Behavioral Medicine and Leadership. From 2006-2011, I helped out with my sister Grace's boutique "Pink Olive" from inception in various of tasks and opportunities to expand the business utilizing social media. She now has 3 stores in NYC area. Please find her company at pinkolive.com I also founded a Career Club - Boston Salty Legs Career Club with special nomination from ABC news Good Morning America Workforce Contributor back in late 2008 until early 2012.  Club's mission was to help each other to reflect and revisit our career paths together and to facilitate job search via sharing our networks.
