Our old way of seeing the world has run out of steam. Our confidence in our institutions is at rock bottom. Our overarching stories looking tired and out of date. Trump, Brexit, global warming, and the imminent impact of automation and AI are all challenging some deeply held assumptions about life and work.

 

The worry is that our old world is falling apart faster than we are working out what to do in the new one. Our biggest enemies in this situation are complacency and lack of curiosity.

 

This is why every time we think WTF? we should seize the opportunity to wonder more. Digging deeper, talking to each other about what is happening and why, shaking our certainties, and doing it all faster. It is always a fine line between fear and excitement, we should choose which side of that line we fall on.
