Joel Barker was the first person to popularize the concept of paradigm shifts in the corporate world. He began his work in 1975 and his books Future Edge and Discovering the Future became best-sellers.
Here are three quotes from Joel Barker that are worthy of pondering:
"Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world."
"A leader is a person you will follow to a place you wouldn't go by yourself."
"Your successful past will block your visions for the future."
