What does the book cover? It is a story of inspiration, observation and transformation : and provides motivational guidance to those who seek how to navigate our increasingly complex, and ever faster world.
The book provides insight into what people and organizations must do to deal with a world of massive disruption and transformation in everything they know.
It is based on what futurist Jim Carroll has learned from a long career as an advisor to clients around the world.
“Quite simply, I have been speaking to organizations around the world for well over 25 years about the future, and the attitudes and actions that can help us to turn it into a world of opportunity.
Somewhere along the way, I came to realize that this unique experience — a life on the stage — had provided me with some very unique insights into how people try to deal with a world of massive change and challenge. Over time, I began to take some sort of observation — usually inspirational, sometimes controversial — and layered them on top of a photo where I had appeared on stage and shared them with people via my social networks.
Then suddenly, in late July 2016, through a variety of colliding circumstances, the opportunity to focus my thinking into a message of hope and inspiration took on a life of its own. Since that moment in time, I have started each and every workday, without fail, very early in the morning, with my coffee, my laptop, and a moment of quiet reflection. They are a critical part of a very important journey, that of painting a picture of hope and optimism each and every day for what the day might bring.
How important are they? I have not missed one day, since starting this in early August 2016. I mark my personal progress and success one day at a time by my ability to inspire myself and others each and every day through this small personal thought.
This book captures but a small number of those morning reflections. As of this writing, I am approaching close to 1,000. You can find all of them at https://inspiration.jimcarroll.com
