My name is Jon. I am interested in how social tools bring people closer together so they can share and try to make better things.
What the #saveukjustice campaign revealed was the disconnect between lawyers and the society they are meant to protect. Defending justice is as about as easy a win as you can get yet it didn’t turn out that way.
It’s not that we, society, are against justice. It’s that we don’t like listening to lawyers because we haven’t forgotten their long track record of them not listening to us. All those years of neglect have come back to haunt the legal profession and I expect that to continue into other areas that are being changed.
If I was on Chancery Lane I’d want to have a serious ‘drains up’ on what went wrong and start to build a strategy to reposition the legal profession in a far more positive and relevant light.”
“Yang’s [Yahoo CEO] 1996 decision to reject Google was predicated on the idea that people wouldn’t seek out better solutions to their problems online. And it ignored the idea that you create customer loyalty by giving them the best experience possible and that, if people found what they wanted through one search engine and not on another, they’d probably keep coming back to the first and ignore the second. Google roared ahead.”
Another one of those lack of vision moments.
My point being, it happens everywhere because vision is an attitude irrespective of the industry.
“Remember the 1990s when everyone was touting the phrase “think outside the box”? It’s a neat image, evoking creativity and unconventional thinking as a way to arrive at ingenious new paths and solutions. But here’s the problem with thinking outside the box: we all know that no matter how creative we get during the weekend seminar, come Monday morning we’re going to have to crawl back into the box again and deal with our current reality.”Hell yeah!!
“Even the Golden Rule of business has transformed. The old Golden Rule in business was to find out what your customers wanted, and give it to them. Today, if you ask your customers what they want and you give it to them, you’re missing a huge opportunity, because their answers will never give you more than a fraction of your potential.”
This quote really resonated with me.
Yes the winners will be the do-ers but those do-ers will also need the vision of recognising which direction things are going.
Doing nothing is still doing something.
Doing the right thing is something completely different.
