The reason the headline reads “The Punch” is because this Nano is based on a Powerful Punch (Quote) by the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali.

A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.

Before you let your mind race, let me set the context as this line can be looked at from different perspectives.

The perspective that most appealed to me is about the ability to change one’s mind

The ability to change your mind on your strongest beliefs, “when presented with new, relevant but different information” is a superpower. 

We have all been presented with new information about the future of our profession.

We have seen the speed of change whether it’s the rise of new competitors or new business models or the change in regulation.

Change is not a Rumour. It is real and it is happening whether we like it or not.

Have you changed your views about anything in our profession? If so, what are you doing about it?
