Time is changing. World is changing. Jobs are changing. Technology is changing. Everything is changing and in this multidisciplinary environment some people cannot change. They are "quants".

"Quants" don't like leaving their professional comfort zones, struggle with ambiguity, are usually Mathematically minded, are obsessed with objectivity, believe that more information means more certainty, exhibit a fairly closed mind and struggle in negotiations and communicating well.

Are you a "quant"? You have no time to waste. Changing the "Quant" mentality takes real effort, but to remain competitive and differentiate yourself today, your professional comfort zone needs to be the world.

Paris de l'Etraz can guide you in this transformation. Some time ago he decided to leave his comfort zone and become an entrepreneur... and he loves to show all of us how we can and must open our professional minds.

There are so many wonderful ways to tell what is essentially the same story: live your life, be passionate, step outside your comfort zone - in at least one area of your life - on a regular basis. Predictability is not really what makes one happy. Well told, Paris!
