If you’re not in awe, you’re not paying attention.

Wise words

In a recent meeting, one of my clients came up with a bit of wisdom that I think sums up the changing business landscape nicely:

“Nervousness & ambiguity are core competencies of business today.”

Well said.

    Was the client looking inward and complaining about his/her own culture? Good point regardless. I’d push the nervousness to outright fear in some of our clients. And as we all know, fear breeds caution breeds inertia.

    fantastically and frighteningly insightful. i guess our job is to transform nervousness into energy and ambiguity into music…

    to whom should i attribute that quote when i steal it?
