These are Difficult Days! — Everywhere we are faced with challenges that seem insurmountable in their scope.
Today, vast interconnected challenges threaten institutions, our economic stability, public health on a global scale and even our personal well-being.
The challenges we face can be described as VUCA challenges or as threats that are at the same time Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous.
VUCA challenges are system challenges.
They are complex and require long range integrated strategies which require constant course correction and significant collaboration for success to be achieved. Top of the list: Climate Change, World Hunger, Political Unrest, Gun Violence, Pandemics, Global Supply Chain Disruption to name just a few.
What to Do
Act – Move forward. While the exact pathway is uncharted, the exact approach that will guide us to success has been long established, well-defined, and well-practiced.
“There are no secrets to success. It's the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure.”
“Doing the best at this moment puts you in best place for the next moment.”

There is no try.”
