A perfect storm is brewing

Disruption is everywhere

A digital revolution happened where each individual is now an entrepreneur and an artist

Creating your own game has never been so crucial

Reinventing and disrupting ourselves is the only way forward

The career ladder is broken

Creativity is just connecting things and we are all creative — we just need to reclaim it

We need to give ourselves challenges to get out of our comfort zones

We need to embrace failure and not take ourselves so seriously

We need to take a long-term view
