Or if you as a right brained, intuitive person in your late 40's-early 60's--you might understand WHY you weren't successful during the 70-90's, you'd understand how to use your natural skills now.
Basically, I think this will be a GREAT book for my son who left his right brain skills behind and became super linear fixing computers and diesel Mercedes-
If you need to understand why so many jobs have been outsourced to Asia...read on--
I am in my 60's and taking a ceramics class in a local college.... this book was required reading.....so....it was interesting, after reading it, to sit down and have a book discussion in class with people of all ages....and hear the ideas this book sparked. Mr. Pink brings all the warmth and fuzziness of your grandmother together with the logic of your math teacher and fuses together the import attributes that will fuel this age. Integrating the right minded capabilities of empathy , creativity and all the right brain attributes with the left brain attributes of logic, order etc. I would encourage everyone....of any age.....to read this illuminating book.
Engineering, accounting, law, and coding—left-brain–heavy professions—are now being outsourced to India, or performed by computers and robots.
Pink gets into detail about how left-brain–focused professions, including medicine and business, are now placing a huge emphasis on right-brain smartness. He discusses how empathy and listening are the new sought-after skills for physicians and how business recruiters are favoring art degrees over MBAs.
I think this book is important for anyone entering the workplace, looking for work, or heading up a company (CEOs and managers). The tools and tips discussed can help current businesses stay innovative by sparking right-brain activity through incorporating laughter, fun, and spirituality into people’s workflow.
I like Pink’s “portfolio” sections at the end of each chapter that provide how-to exercises for increasing your right-brain activity.
This book will spark your creative juices and encourage you to think differently about work and meaning in your life.
I give it five stars!
Daniel has managed to give a simple business direction in terms of Abundance, Asia and Automation (Asia more being an indicator of low cost alternated than the region per se). He has very simple explained how the right brain is going to be more in demand than left brain and hence how one can be ready to enhance ones standing in face of this change. The interplay of the six senses – Design , Story , Symphony, Empathy, Play and Meaning has been brought out very well. One may not necessarily agree with each of them, but at least a few of them will hold true in most of the cases (at least it does in my case). The list of aides for each of the above is very helpful to start experimenting.
I was particularly influenced by the content regarding metaphors and brainstorming. While I knew some of it, but , the pointers given by Daniel will help improve on my current experience.
Labyrinth was a total surprise and am looking forward to try it out.
Overall, a very good book with some great new concepts. What differentiates this book is that it moves on from mere collection of concepts to actual aids of carrying out the concept. If one has not yet read a book on left brain and right brain, I would highly recommend this book
