“Today’s graduates, he said, will need to carve their own path, but have the freedom to fail and to try again.”

-Mark Zuckerberg

A quote from Mark Zuckerberg, within the context of the recent MarketWatch.com article below. Like feudal Japan in the age of Miyamoto Musashi, we’ve entered a transitional period in our society. Technology and economic evolution is once again reshaping society and how we do business. As a result, many have begun to feel as if out on an island both culturally and professionally.

On the one hand, we have more resources at our disposal than in any other time in human history yet we remain unsure how to manage it all. At the same time, many of the institutions that we’ve clung to for stability have begun to shift away in other directions.

The need for individual ‘Strategy’ is greater than ever as we’ve begun to move into an age of the Ronin Professional.
