In days past leaders held their cards close. They claimed that power flowed to those who best harbored and defended coveted information.
But information is no longer scarce and very rarely inaccessible. It’s a different world and walking alone and cultivating isolation won’t take one far. Today, power flows to those who think in terms of abundance – those who recognize the correlation and reciprocation of personal and collective success.
What used to be considered ‘trade secrets’ is now about trading secrets because important information and game-changing ideas do not appreciate in solitude.
Have a good idea? Share it. Hoarding is not investing and power is not about withholding information, it’s about sharing it to empower others.
If people now have the ability to discover what they wish to know, why not opt to be the messenger? Or better yet, why not share what they don’t know they don’t know?
Be a Maverick,
