Cooks & Chefs: What it Means to Be a True Original

One day in early 2015, Elon Musk called Tim Urban on the phone. He told Urban he liked his blog, Wait But Why, and asked Urban if he’d consider doing some writing about the industries he’s involved in. Urban believes it’s not Musk’s intelligence or wealth or drive that separates him so far from the crowd, but rather the way he thinks. Urban’s talk on the subject ‘being original’ galvanizes audiences by leaving them with the belief that it’s fully in their power to be more original—simply by absorbing the epiphany that the world they live in was built by people no smarter than they are.

Disrupting Disruption

We live in a culture of change. Most companies are overwhelmed by the massive shifts that they have to make to their business models. Disruption is everywhere. Digital transformation is imperative. There are several new (and dramatic) realities that will force businesses to rethink many of their commonly held beliefs about what works in business today, and what the future may look like. Interestingly, this is less about the adoption of technology and much more about how consumers have become that much more efficient in this very different landscape. The result of this? Consumers have adopted technology in a way that has fundamentally changed how they buy and interact with businesses today. The world continues to change and challenge brands like never before. Is your business ready to disrupt disruption?
