"The art of innovation is not rooted in the desire to be disruptive, it is inspired by the passion to be revolutionary. Change lives, change the game!"

"In order to survive in today's digital world, you need to have a voracious appetite for change."

“Honesty is the best gift you can give someone and yourself. It is the currency that buys you trust.”

"Have a plan, but plan on that plan not going according to plan."

"Be comfortable with being uncomfortable."

"Thought-leadership is a first-of-a-kind thing. It's not an observation of the past. It's about creating something new, whether it is an idea, a point of view, a philosophy or way of doing things."

I would rather be called ignorant than full of shit. Humility, learning heart, judgement, integrity.

Lemmings follow. Thought leaders tell the herd not to go over the cliff.

Don't get it twisted, I'm an optimistic futurist. I arrive there through healthy skepticism, not sustained and compounded ignorance.

Don't trust, verify! Why? Trust is earned. Seems people have forgotten this very wise adage.
