I keep waiting for the global dialogue to switch from talk about “the economy” to something much more meaningful, like: life, nature, society. I live in the United States and am a realist, so I’m aware that I may be waiting a while yet for this change to come about. But it seems pretty clear that Brian Solis in his TEDx talk “Screw business as usual….this is the real world” has gotten awfully close to the switch and that he could even be getting ready to flip it to the position of putting life considerations in front of economic ones.
In opening comments, Brian identifies himself as a business analyst who’s becoming a sociologist, interested in the behaviour of what people do in their digital lives, and why. And he ends with a quote from Dr. Maya Angelou:
At the end of the day people won’t remember what you say or did … they will remember how you make them feel.
I’m grateful for Brian’s meaningful contributions to the conversation about where the economic-social revolution is leading us, and for making sure that human values are prominently featured in that dialogue.
