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"

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.

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.

Searching for next disruptive emerging tech in mobile, Researching via incorporating 1st Start-up Cebisu Research
Introduction
I'm an entrepreneur, former 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 (GSE 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.

I also founded a Career Club - Boston Salty Legs Career Club with special nomination from ABC news Good Morning America Workforce Contributor Tory Johnson back in late 2008.  Here is the clip of the interview from ABC News (special thanks to Tory Johnson). Club's mission is to help each other to reflect and revisit our career paths together and to facilitate job search via our support network.

I'm working on incorporating my first start-up "Cebisu Research" to build a new community of people interested in disruptive tech space especially in mobile. Currently working on developing our Advisory Board of Directors to share expertise and brainstorm ideas to start our company.
