Future Friday: The future is all about adapting to change

Adapt to change or find yourself on the "ash heap of history."
Adapt to change or find yourself on the “ash heap of history.”

This post is a very simple one. It is a powerful quote from futurist and author James Canton. In his book Future Smart he writes:

Narrow-minded, change-resistant thinking is a common challenge in business today. This myopia will be tolerated less in the future, when the speed of prediction and adaptation will be furious and the very survival of business leaders will be at stake…. Leaders who don’t understand this, who think the future will be identical to the past, who resist change will be left behind.”

Where do you stand? What are you prepared to do? Will you let the future pass you by or are you prepared to adapt to the change?
