‘How might these observations relate to the institutional transformations (inversions) around you?’*
‘The first step to acting like an entrepreneur is to look not at the writing on the wall but at the spaces between the writing.’**
We are each curious in a different way, everyone interested in different things. We may see things others do not. More likely we will think differently about what we all see.
Don’t get hung up on whether you are or are not an entrepreneur. Your curiosity and interest means you can be entrepreneurial. There is so much for you to yet explore, the empty space between what others are doing.
This is where the future will shaped – by companies, organisations, and tribes, and sometimes individuals. This is about exploring abundance more than fighting over scarcity. And we can all begin today:
‘The greatest gift you can give a person is to see who she is and to reflect that back to her, when we help people to be who they want to be, to take back some of the permission they deny themselves, we are doing our best, most meaningful work.’^
(*From U.Lab Portobello. This follows the question: ‘Try to summarise an observation on your opening over the past weeks.’ My observation was that significant things emerge from our listening to the experience of others, always exploring, and how we’re intelligent together **)
