A world moving in time

This page is another attention directing tool.

It asks our brain to recall (and connect to) a few of the prior periods in the human condition and ask what it means for us.

We are embedded in a changing external situation that is often hard to see at the time. We may see the immediate tactical changes around us, but there is a larger meta or strategic system that is also in motion.

We need a work approach that is adequate to the challenges ahead.

Where could we see these prior conditions?

 * Museums
 * Driving down the street in certain parts of a city or town
 * Driving across different parts of the country
 * The History Channel
 * Movies, books and plays (Out of Africa, Roots, The Patriot, Gangs of New York, Hair)
 * World news on TV

primative desert living

 * The Lessons of History by James, Will, and Ariel Durant
 * The Holocaust Chronicle
 * Garage sales and flea markets
 * Family photo albums
 * Adventures of a Bystander by Peter Drucker

Managing Oneself is a REVOLUTION in human affairs.” … “It also requires an almost 180-degree change in the knowledge workers’ thoughts and actions from what most of us—even of the younger generation—still take for granted as the way to think and the way to act.” …

… “Managing Oneself is based on the very opposite realities: Workers are likely to outlive organizations (and therefore, employers can’t be depended on for designing your life), and the knowledge worker has mobility.” ← in a context




These pages are attention directing tools for navigating a world moving toward unimagined futures.

It’s up to you to figure out what to harvest and calendarize
working something out in time (1915, 1940, 1970 … 2040 … the outer limit of your concern)nobody is going to do it for you.

It may be a step forward to actively reject something (rather than just passively ignoring) and then figure out a coping plan for what you’ve rejected.

Your future is between your ears and our future is between our collective ears — it can’t be otherwise. A site exploration starting point
