The spread of ideas has been enabled by technology.
When ideas stop flowing and people stop moving, the system becomes ineffective. Our way of life demands the movement of people and ideas in order to cross-pollinate with other cultures and to expand our base of knowledge and resources.
Always on the move is becoming a new way of life as people seek to recreate themselves and their companies to match this new reality. Technology has served to make connecting easier and bring people closer–but only those that want to connect.
Striking a balance between constantly moving and staying in one place seems to be what many people are struggling to resolve. For people that can make it work, staying in motion and remaining open to new opportunities can be rewarding–and the key to developing new sources of value.
