Emergence is risky

If we want control, then stick to the knitting… metaphorically speaking.

Even then, it is an illusion. Because change is happening all around us. And to assume we have control is bonkers.

However, bringing something new into the world is vulnerable.

It is tender. And it might not work.

But without that creative risk, that exposing something of ourselves that hasn’t been seen before, then we’re stuck.

Whilst stuckness is reasonable. It won’t change the world for the better.

Seth Godin’s post yesterday ‘Being stuck is reasonable’ is a timely reminder. Thanks, Seth.
