Daniel D. posted on LinkedIn, “maybe 2023 is the year to write a short term ‘war time’ mission statement. He was commenting on Nike’s manifesto published in 1980. With all the tech layoffs and uncertain times, I’m lucky to have a job in emerging technology. I recently facilitated a workshop focus on the metaverse and it was amazing. What’s my dream job? Doing this. Teaching people about technology and how they can use it to improve their business. I did it with manufacturing execution systems and now I’m doing it with the metaverse.
But still, if the economy is going sideways and companies are getting lean, maybe I should have war call for myself.
Nike’s said, “We’re on offense all the time. This is as much about battle as about business.”
I’m in a different phase of life. That’s OK.
