Summary

We send our kids to school and obsess about their test scores, their behavior and theirability to fit in.We post a help wanted ad and look for experience, famous colleges and a history of avoiding failure.We invest in companies based on how they did last quarter, not on what they#x19;re going to do tomorrow.So why are we surprised when it all falls apart?Our economy is not static, but we act as if it is. Your position in the world is defined by whatyou instigate, how you provoke, and what you learn from the events you cause. In a worldfilled with change, that#x19;s what matters #x14; yourability to create and learn from change.Poke the Box is a manifesto about producingsomething that#x19;s scarce, and thus valuable. Itdemands that you stop waiting for a road mapand start drawing one instead. You know howto do this, you#x19;ve done it before, but along theway, someone talked you out of it.We need your insight and your dreams and your contributions. Hurry.
