Google Just Can’t Get Instant Messaging Right. WILTW: Jan 22–28, 2016

“The ability to do work has absolutely no correlation with promotion. To be promoted, you just need to be able to pass a mundane exam every few years. A typical promotion exam question is “How many Nigerian states are named after rivers?” Keep answering these kind of questions and you will keep getting promoted. All of a sudden, you are a Director but cannot even write a one-page letter.”

Governments exist to serve their citizens. One could argue that the Indian government (as I shared some time last year) recalling bank notes had a positive impact on citizens (more tax revenue for education, roads, etc). Yet it also harmed millions by eroding their wealth.

I believe many young people are disconnected from school today for many reasons but two are paramount, first, we haven’t found the right way to educate them. The system we currently use was built for a world that no longer exists. The second reason is that the current system doesn’t help many young people to discover and harness their talents, potentials, or gifting.
