My Goals
An Alternate Approach…
I’ll share the trends that I’ve observed,
and books that I have read or heard
at least two times, but generally more.
and link you to the Audible store,
While the future I cannot foretell
these principles will serve you well.
Principle 1: Extrapolation is the best starting point
for prediction
Once Upon a Time, Three Networks Dominated
the Media Landscape in the United States
Every day, these guys would define the news…
... while local affiliates and newspapers sold scarce
audience access at monopoly prices
Then one day Ted Turner launched the cable TV
revolution...
And one of these guys invented the Internet...
The means of news production and distribution
were democratized...
Twin revolutions fragmented audiences, causing
major economic upheaval
• Hundreds of cable channels, exponential growth in
Web sites
• Mass media came under economic pressure leading to
• Demise of TV doctor
• Papercuts
Facebook went public at 20x the value of The Wall
Street Journal…
WSJ (2007) ABC (1995) Facebook (2012)
…and has more than quadrupled since 2012
WSJ (2007) ABC (1995) Facebook (2012) Facebook (2017)
Market Capitalization Perspective

Learning the Laws: Moore’s and Metcalfe’s
Eye (or Ear) Openers to Digital Opportunities
Principle 2: Improbable events will have
outsized influence in your life
Which of these did YOU predict?
Understanding Disruptive Innovation
• High-end products add features
most customers can’t use
• Incumbents cede low end to “not
good enough” entrants
• Low end, competing with non-
consumption, gradually improves
• High end fails suddenly as upstarts
become “more than good enough”
This Week’s News
Comparative “Metro” Area Populations
“(In 1905) McClure’s Magazine…recounted
the story of that country doctor and his
brother, and of St. Mary’s Hospital, which
handled more surgical cases annually than
any other hospital in the United States,
more than even the great Johns Hopkins.”
(The Doctors Mayo, Helen Clapesattle, p. 289)
Principle 3:
Mindset Matters
More than Skill
Sets
Skill Sets
• Speaking - Vocabulary secondary to basic grammar
• Digital Production - shooting, editing and streaming
video, and photography/images
• Writing - represents you when you’re not present
• Active Voice!
• Avoid cliches like the plague!
The Two Basic Mindsets
• Fixed: “Performance reveals my ability and IQ. Others
recognize these traits in me and value my
accomplishments.” (I’m smart!)
• Growth: “I can change abilities significantly. If I can’t do
something now, I probably just haven’t worked hard
enough at it yet.” (I can learn!)
• Your presence today is a step toward adopting or
reinforcing a more growth-oriented mindset.
Mayo Clinic’s First Social Networkers
Dr. William J. Mayo’s Travels
“By the end of the 1920s Dr. Will could
say he had studied surgery in every town
in America and Canada of one hundred
thousand population or more, and had
crossed the Atlantic thirty times.”
(The Doctors Mayo, Helen Clapesattle, p. 405)

Principle 5:
Think Analogically
• When promoting
initiatives, emphasize
similarity with the
familiar and continuity
with the past.
• Novelty is overrated and
can be a hindrance.
Can you spot the analogy?
… and is part of the DNA of
healthcare!
