The Future Belongs to Those Who Are Fast
by Jim Carroll
“We live in a period of time in which change is happening faster than ever before. Success will come to those who innovate, change and adapt!”
The Future Belongs to Those Who are Fast features the best of the insight from Jim Carroll’s blog, in which he covers issues related to creativity, innovation and future trends.
From the introduction:
Notes Jim in the introduction to the book: “What I have learned over time, regardless of the industry or group, is that the pace of change that we have seen in the last few years is not going to slow down – the future does truly belong to those who are fast.
The future doesn’t belong to those who have owned a market place because of their history. Past success doesn’t guarantee a future of winning. Resting on ones laurels is perhaps the best method to place yourself at the greatest risk in the future.
We live in a world in which business models evolve at a furious pace. In which customers are demanding and expecting new forms of interaction. In which technology and mobile devices are changing industries at a furious pace. Everywhere you look, you witness rates of change and innovation which are accelerating, not slowing down.
That leads to an undeniable fact – it will be the ability of an individual, a leader, and an organization to keep up with fast paced change that will increasingly define their potential for future success.
Back in 2002 when blogs became part of the online world, I decided to start documenting some of my observations on trends, innovation and creative thinking from my various keynotes onto my own blog, which I maintain at JimCarroll.com. At this point, there are almost a thousand entries, but there are a few that seem to resonate with people more than others, hence this book.
I have taken what I think are some of the most popular, relevant and useful observations from the blog and combined them into this book, The Future Belongs to Those Who Are Fast. My intent was to provide an easy way to discover some of what I have learned through what has become a truly remarkable job.”
