What the world needs now
What do you think the world needs now?
That was the theme of TED Global 2010.
I don’t normally bang on about the world needing more leadership. We are all leaders. That was the point being made at TED.
But I think the world needs less panic. Because we are panicking, we are “brushing things under the carpet”. We do that when we are in a panic, but it really doesn’t help.
But we also, always, have an area of our lives where, for some reason, whatever that is, we are not scared and everyone else is a jibbering wreck. In this area, on this one thing, we are eerily calm.
We can host the conversation because in that area of our current jumbled-up and precarious existence, where everyone else is frightened, we are not.
