Dealing with fast changes with smart failure
Posted October 22, 2012on:
If you listen to and laugh with Eddie Obeng, you might agree that the world seems to be changing at a rate that is sometimes difficult to understand.
Rules and principles that we learnt and now follow do not seem to be valid any more. Or as Obeng said more articulately in this TED video:
We spend our time responding rationally to a world which we understand and recognize, but which no longer exists.
I took two things away after watching and reflecting on this TED talk:
- We run the risk of allowing the pace of change to overtake the pace of learning.
- We learn and innovate by failing in smart ways.
