There’s an Opp for That

by Roger Pynn

Wonder what the future will look like? Thomas Friedman sees a dimly lit future if we don’t start teaching critical thinking in our public schools.

Employers of tomorrow – for that matter, today – can’t afford to staff their businesses with order takers. We need innovators … and innovators are people who can think over the horizon, spot a need and create solutions to problems that often haven’t yet been recognized.

If you’re like me, you’re looking for people who look at life like one big iPhone waiting for apps to be written. I like to think of them as “opps,” things that create opportunities.
