Appetite for Change. –Tom Peters
I am re-introducing myself to Tom Peter’s via Thriving on Chaos, The Pursuit of WOW and In Search of Excellence. TP was on to this social media movement back in the eighties. Not that he was predicting the FB’s and MySpaces of the world but rather the principles that govern each of those mediums.
I often get the question – How many of the companies that TP wrote about are still around? Respectfully – I think that question misses the point of TP’s writings. Maybe that number is 25%, maybe 50%, maybe more or maybe less – the point is in the principles. The principles are enduring and companies that execute the principles well are enduring.
Tom is not for everyone as his style of writing is radical and sometimes over the top. I would, however, encourage everyone to pick up a piece of work by Tom – every one of them are applicable.
Have an amazing day and for those in the Midwest – try to stay warm.
