This week I have been reflecting on how many things I no longer see, use or need in light of tech advances. For instance, neither of my college aged kids need maps or watches since they have smart phones. We have a bookcase full of family videos recorded on VHS tapes. We subscribe to the printed local newspaper only because the coupons pay for themselves. Groupon may change that in 2011. And CDs? With iTunes who needs them?
Here’s a great link to You’re Out: 20 Things That Became Obsolete In This Decade.
This list reminds me that good leadership never becomes obsolete. Enjoy, and have a great weekend.
