What If We Only Have 10 Years?Jun 09, 2022
For me what is important is that we don't just talk, but that we also transform.
I see that we are currently stuck in a loop of being aware that we need to act but not actually fundamentally shifting things.
One of the analogies I always use in my trainings and coachings is that of the titanic. If you are on the titanic and it is sinking, moving the deck chairs from one deck to another is not going to cut it.
At some point you are going to have to go and address the big hole at the bottom of the boat and fix that. That is what making progress and truly transforming the situation means.
In our current world we are moving a lot of furniture around, but not catalysing enough real progress. We are acting as if we have all the time in the world. You know... like the next 50, 100 years... to sort this out. When in fact the clock is ticking and we are running out of time.
So how about this instead...
Our creativity exponentially increases based on how we frame the problem. Even more, when we back it up with the decision that we will change things by a certain time.
So for example we didn't think about putting a man on the moon in 50 years. We decided to do it now. We didn't waste our time on whether it was possible or not. We just got on and did it.
So let me ask you, if you decided that we were going to succeed in the shift to a flourishing world within 10 years, what would you do differently now?
Until Next Time,
