Three Insight about Digital ADVANCEMENT

The most ADVANCING thing in the world is an advanced mindset.

Human history is an evolutionary journey to keep advancing economically, technologically, and sociologically. Advancement is about forward-thinking, progress, improvement, fresh knowledge, modernization while the opposite of advancement is primitivity, outdated concept/tradition, static mindset, negative behavior, etc.

The modern society is a dynamic continuum with collective human progress. Real societal advancement is made through the work of forwarding-looking minds, update knowledge, and progressive activities. When the world is catching up with the most advanced mindsets, stepping into the further-looking perspective, aligned with a positive attitude, fitting into the new digital dynamic, and integrating into upward movements, it makes a LEAP of collective human progress. The true advancement is about QUALITY, DELIGHT, SIMPLICITY, BRIGHTNESS, and INTELLIGENCE.

The most ADVANCING thing in the world is advanced mindset: The most advanced things in the world are not hard things, neither supercomputers nor fancy gadgets, but the soft stuff - the mindset that can think forward, positively and creatively. It comes with a clear vision and precious insight. Vision is a future state of being, vision makes you feel passionate about what is going to happen - the opportunities, it is a clear choice among future scenarios that advocate advancement and promotes positive behaviors. The most advanced mind with great vision is the one which relates itself to a purpose greater than itself, contributes to the common good and the collective human progress because the visionary mind has the ability to think the past, perceive what is now and foresee the future in pursuit of advancement. The vision if understood in this perspective becomes a comprehensible dream beyond words and an achievable reality. It is through identifying the "destination" for all, charting the route for all from their own respective positions toward the destination.

High-maturity is the ADVANCING stage from Function-Firm-Delight: The advance scenario is to improve the business maturity from functioning (could still have a lot of redundancy) to firm (work solidly), to delight - the stage presenting the level of elegance and delight. When things or people are mature, they are not aged, they are in the advanced stage - ripened and delightful. When eating is not for surviving only, dressing is not for warming up only, and working is not for doing mechanical and repetitive work only; when being innovative becomes a state of mind to discover authenticity and take adventures; and when life is shifting from surviving to striving and thriving, people are becoming more progressive, the life is in the most advanced stage, and the society as a whole is advancing to the next stage. Delight is reflected in the expression of joy that overflows with aesthetic appreciation and abundant gratitude to NATURE- Nature is delightful!

We are on the ADVANCING journey when we move from information scarcity to knowledge economy to creativity economy: Many say we are still in the era of information-rich and insight poor. The advanced journey starts when you climb the knowledge-insight-wisdom pyramid, the higher you reach, the more advanced view you can perceive. The advanced mind presents sound judgment based on profound understanding and timeless wisdom. The advanced learning journey gets to the inflection point when you not only absorb knowledge, but also criticize old knowledge, co-create new knowledge, and share a fresh perspective. The advanced journey reaches the turning point when you are in the right spot to see the two sides of coin, and capture multidimensional views via the right angle; when your vision is not limited to black or white, but embrace the full spectrum of color; when you have the ability to identify the true signal from background noises; when you have the courage to brighten the surroundings, and when you have options to take alternative paths, tap creativity, and make continuous adventure, to enjoy different scenes, you are reaching the advancing stage.

ADVANCEMENT can be accelerated when we follow the most advanced mindsets in the world and evolve into advanced activities and movement in a consistent way. The digital world is hyperconnected and interdependent. The advancement can become more reachable when we appreciate each other’s strength, complement each other’s capability; understand each other via empathetic mind connection, set principles to build common ground, and lift each other via the mutual trust. Only through continuous improvement, human advancement can be sustained and the world can move forward with accelerated speed.
