Aspirations & Patience

As we try to understand and find our way out of the mess we have got ourselves into that is the way we work and the economies we have created, I’m interested to see how many are offering “solutions”. Something like the equivalent of a nicotine patch for complexity.

It’s not like that. It has taken us at least five generations to create the crisis of complexity we are in. It will take us as at least as many until we are the other side of it.

That doesn’t mean we can’t start, but we won’t start to solve the challenges we have until we pay them the respect they deserve.

There are no convenient quick fixes.
