"It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things." -- Leonardo da Vinci
Do you even want to be a person of accomplishment?
A first step to accomplishment may be to develop a vision of the future. Visionaries often see opportunities that are not apparent to those trapped with a world view shaped by current perceptions.
The world has already changed. Even greater change is coming - very quickly.
If you have a business, or are planning on creating a business, consider creating new operations that target what will be valued in the future. Profits may come from what is valued now - however growth may be spectacular with a bit of applied vision.
We all need to spend time considering alternatives, thinking about what things may happen and how we can best prepare for them.
Then we need to go out and happen to those things.
