Japanese soldier Hiroo Onoda spent 29 years of his life thinking WWII was still raging...and he fought on! Perhaps never in modern history has an episode contained so much misinformation, miscommunication and ignorance of "The Writing on the Wall!"

Business lessons from this historical episode abound...

I remember this story Yoni and these lessons you have given are very sound. Often our assumptions are based on our own thoughts which are never checked to see if they stand up.

I have seen this often and unfortunately opportunities have been missed.

This is one of the craziest stories I've ever heard. Again Yoni you do an amazing job making it into a business story people can relate to.
