So why switch tracks? If you're swayed by matters practical then consider for a moment the future of work: In 5-10 years time, I believe that even more of our analytical thinking will migrate offshore where labour is still cheaper. And in 20-30 years time, I believe much more of it will be done by machines. We'll be valued most where we can listen to our customers' problems in person, and offer ideas that wouldn't occur to machines.
Perhaps more importantly, creativity is in fact ... fun. And work needs to be fun. Enter your second childhood if you dare, and become a real asset to your organisation.
