Sentences to Ponder


1. International educational attainment: USA fading

“One of the things that ‘everyone knows’ is that the successful economies of the 21st century will be built on high-skilled workers. The U.S. used to lead the world in educating its population, but no longer. Just spending marginally more money on the existing system isn’t likely to be a successful answer. Some deeper rethinking is needed.”

2. What the world values, in one chart

3. Identify leaders by giving people assignments

Remember, these are simple examples. I categorize the responses three ways:

  1. 50% of the people vanish
  2. 25% of the people do the assignment
  3. 25% of the people make shit happen well beyond what the assignment was

The folks who capture my attention and energy going forward are the ones in category 3. The leaders.”

4. 200,000 people applied for a one way trip to mars

“Among the few stipulations: Candidates must be between 5-foot-2 and 6-foot-2, have a ready sense of humor and be ‘Olympians of tolerance.'”
