Being brave

We live in a time of massive change and instability. Many of us sense the uniqueness of the opportunities this presents us as individuals and collectively.

But we are daunted too. In many cases we are trying to shrug of lifetimes of conditioning and habit.

In the "real" world of work most of us are afraid, most of the time. We comply, compromise, concede. We know we "should" be brave and then we beat ourselves up about being too scared.

We need to be gentler with ourselves, and each other, as we take the small steps that are the only way we will be able to deal with the enormity of our challenge.
