For everyone else, learning how to embrace instability is the challenge. “What do you do to get everyone engaged on this journey? We all have to learn new skills. Being able to live on one set of skills over a career is not realistic. Change is going to happen, not all of it good, in serious ways. Optimists look to all the excitement. Pessimists look to all that gets lost. They’re both right. How you react depends on what you have to gain versus what you have to lose. Some are hoping they can duck and it will go away.”

I think that the challenge will be to find (fleeting) emergent patterns of stability in and among the dynamic flows. Places to step on and to push off from.
