INTELLIGENCE IS... Stephen Hawking

Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.
— Stephen Hawking, British cosmologist

 

OKAY... HAVE YOU HEARD ANY PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE
TALK ABOUT HOW THE WORLD HAS CHANGED?

Maybe I just missed it.

I don't hear about how we need to adapt to globalization, to rising economies and greater competition from other markets.

I haven't heard about building strategic relationships between countries to advance American interests.

Nor have I heard about the need to strengthen our knowledge-worker training and help our children prepare for the jobs of tomorrow.

In business if we don't adaptwe become obsolete and then die.

Shouldn't we expect our leaders to understand that too?
