    2. Dan Pink

    3. “The era of ‘left brain’ dominance—and the Information Age it engendered—Is giving way to a new world in which ‘right brain’ qualities—inventiveness, empathy, meaning—will govern.”—Dan Pink, A Whole New Mind

    4. “The past few decades have belonged to a certain kind of person with a certain kind of mind—computer programmers who could crank code, lawyers who could craft contracts, MBAs who could crunch numbers. But the keys to the kingdom are changing hands. The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind—creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers and meaning makers. These people—artists, inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, big picture thinkers—will now reap society’s richest rewards and share its greatest joys.” —Dan Pink, A Whole New Mind

    5. L-Directed Thinking: sequential, literal, functional, textual, analytictoR-Directed Thinking: simultaneous, metaphorical, aesthetic, contextual, syntheticSource: Dan Pink/A Whole New Mind

    6. “Left-brain style thinking used to be the driver, and right-brain style thinking the passenger. Now R-Directed Thinking is suddenly grabbing the wheel, stepping on the gas, and determining where we’re going and how we’re going to get there. L-Directed aptitudes—the kind measured by the SAT and employed by CPAs—are still necessary. But they’re no longer sufficient.”—Dan Pink, A Whole New Mind

    7. The Big Three Drivers of ChangeAbundanceAsiaAutomationSource: Dan Pink, A Whole New Mind

    8. “But abundance has also produced an ironic result: The very triumph of L-Directed Thinking has lessened its significance. The prosperity it has unleashed has placed a premium on things that appeal to less rational, more R-Directed sensibilities—beauty, spirituality, emotion.” —Dan Pink,A Whole New Mind

    12. “The MFA is the new MBA.”—Dan Pink, A Whole New Mind

    13. “What does this mean for you and me? How can we prepare for the conceptual age? On one level, the answer is straightforward. In a world tossed by Abundance, Asia and Automation, in a which L-Directed Thinking remains necessary but no longer sufficient, we must become proficient in R-Directed Thinking and master aptitudes that are ‘high concept’ and ‘high touch.’ But on another level, that answer is inadequate. What exactly are we supposed to do?” —Dan Pink, A Whole New Mind

    22. “The Creative Age is a wide-open game.”—Richard Florida, The Rise of the Creative Class

    23. “The Dawn of the Creative Age” “There’s a whole new class of workers in the U.S. that’s 38-million strong: the creative class. At its core are the scientists, engineers, architects, designers, educators, artists, musicians and entertainers whose economic function is to create new ideas, new technology, or new content. Also included are the creative professions of business and finance, law, healthcare and related fields, in which knowledge workers engage in complex problem solving that involves a great deal of independent judgment. Today the creative sector of the U.S. economy, broadly defined, employs more than 30% of the workforce (more than all of manufacturing) and accounts for more than half of all wage and salary income (some $2 trillion)—almost as much as the manufacturing and service sectors together. Indeed, the United States has now entered what I call the Creative Age.” —“America’s Looming Creativity Crisis”/ Richard Florida/ HBR/10.04

    24. “The global talent pool and the high-end, high margin creative industries that used to be the sole province of the U.S., and a critical source of its prosperity, have begun to disperse around the globe. A host of countries—Ireland, Finland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, among them—are investing in higher education, cultivating creative people, and churning out stellar products, from Nokia phones to the Lord of the Rings movies.. Many of these countries have learned from past U.S. success and are shoring up efforts to attract foreign talent—including Americans. … The United States may well be the Goliath of the twentieth century global economy, but it will take just half a dozen twenty-first-century Davids to begin to wear it down. To stay innovative, America must continue to attract the world’s sharpest minds. And to do that, it needs to invest in the further development of its creative sector. Because wherever creativity goes—and, by extension, wherever talent goes—innovation and economic growth are sure to follow.” —“America’s Looming Creativity Crisis”/Richard Florida/HBR/10.04

    25. The Memphis Manifesto*: Building a Community of Ideas1. Cultivate & reward creativity.2. Invest in the creative ecosystem.3. Embrace diversity.4. Nurture the creatives.5. Value risk-taking.6. Be authentic (emphasize uniqueness)7. Invest in and build on quality of place.8. Remove barriers to creativity.9. Take responsibility for change. Development as D.I.Y.10. Ensure that every person, especially children, has the right to creativity. Become a “Steward of creativity.”*2003/The Creative 100/MemphisSource: Richard Florida, The Rise of the Creative Class

    26. Dennis Littky

    27. “Thousands of years of history suggest that the schoolhouse as we know it is an absurd way to rear our young; it’s contrary to everything we know about what it is to be a human being. For example, we know that doing and talking are what most successful people are very good at—that’s where they truly show their stuff. We know that reading and writing are important, but also that these are things that only a small and specialized group of people is primarily good at doing. And yet we persist in a form of schooling that measures our children’s ‘achievement’ largely in the latter terms, not the former … and sometimes through written tests alone.” —Deborah Meier, Foreword to Dennis Littky’s The Big Picture

    28. The Real Goals of Education/Dennis Littky/The Big Picture*Be lifelong learners*Be passionate*Be ready to take risks*Be able to problem solve and think critically*Be able to look at things differently*Be able to work independently and with others*Be creative*Care and want to give back to their community*Persevere*Have integrity and self-respect*Have moral courage*Be able to use the world around them well*Speak well, write well, read well, and work well with numbers*AND TRULY ENJOY THEIR LIFE AND WORK

    29. “What we want to see is the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child.”—George Bernard Shaw

    30. “Teaching is listening. Learning is talking.”—Message painted on a Met advisor’s truck by his students (from Dennis Littky, The Big Picture)

    31. “We have plenty of people who can teach what they know, but very few who can teach their own capacity to learn.”—Joseph Hart, educator

    32. “From the media, we hear these great tearjerker stories of kids who succeeded despite the odds. But all of our kids are facing the odds of an education system that is all wrong. The odds are against them because the system works against them instead of with them. … I see it every day: kids who people have dismissed as ‘dumb in math’ or ‘uninterested in science’ or ‘nonreaders’ doing incredible things in these exact same areas because they were (finally) allowed to start with something they were already interested in. A 9th-grade kid who ‘hates science’ sees a movie about freezing people, then decides to read a college biology text on cryogenics, and then gives a presentation on it that blows your socks off.”—Dennis Littky, The Big Picture

    33. Juan Enriquez

    43. “Chile, often cited as the shining example of Latin American economic reform …Carefully followed the recommendations of the most orthodox Ph.D.s in economics …Nicknamed the “Chicago Boys” …For a decade it’s economy grew spectacularly.But even Chile may be headed toward a crash …Because it took the inefficiency out of the Old Economy … But failed to build a New Economy.”Source: Juan Enriquez/Asthe Future Catches You

    44. “IN SILICON VALLEY …IF YOU ARE NOT STOLEN AWAY BY SOME COMPANY EVERY FEW YEARS (OR MONTHS) …YOU ARE NOT CONSIDERED A ‘HOT PROPERTY.’STABILITY IS AMARK OFSHAME.”Source: Juan Enriquez/Asthe Future Catches You

    45. “On February 12, 2001, anyone with access to the Internet …Could suddenly look at a new atlas …One containing the whole human genome.”Source: Juan Enriquez, As The Future Catches You

    46. “WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO SPREAD AND SELL KNOWLEDGE … KEEPING SOMETHING ‘EXCLUSIVE’ AND ‘RARE’ OFTEN LEADS TO A LOSS OF VALUE. WHAT MATTERS MOST IS THAT THE PURCHASER BECOMES PART OF A NETWORK … AND THAT THE NETWORK KEEPS GROWING.”Source: Juan Enriquez/Asthe Future Catches You
