In our last two posts we shared two powerful perspectives on the depth and breadth of the dramatic changes going on in our world. Confronting the unknown range of impact from these changes can be both shocking and freeing. To move you into engagement, we are asserting a set of New Rules as part of what we are calling Reality 2.0TM and inviting you to try them on. We are not claiming that they are the Truth or an extraordinary economic insight on our part. Rather, they are a proposition meant to provoke fierce investigation of reality and stimulate creative thinking. They are intended to bring each of us more present to our world and to call forth far more effective actions on our parts. Reality 2.0TM: The New Rules 1) All Bets Are Off 2) All The Rules Have Changed 3) All Contracts Are Invalid/Restructurable 4) It's Never Coming Back 5) No One Knows The New Rules 6) Fear Is Everywhere 7) If I Try To Hold On To Any Of The Way I Think It Was I Will Die 8) Play Ball!
Our clients have begun exploring these rules with each other in our group sessions and are having insightful and productive conversations. Several have introduced them in conversations with their teams as a way to break through the veil of fear and pretense that has many people frozen. Test-drive them yourself and let us all know what you learn.
