We Live in Disruptive and Challenging Times
While the future has always been uncertain, the speed and complexity of today’s change is leaving many behind – disoriented and struggling to cope. What worked in the past appears no longer adequate. Knowledge and information, once stable sources of economic power, are no longer enough.
Life is uncertain. The future unknown. But it is not random.
Randomness is what happens when you roll a pair of dice. Randomness can be measured. In dice, probability reigns. Skills are irrelevant. There’s no skill to rolling dice.
Life is different. Life is uncertain. In life, as in financial planning, skills matter. And because new skills make available new possibility, our primary aim is to help our clients cultivate the skills and sensibilities necessary not just to cope, but to thrive in a world of uncertainty.
The future demands new skills, new sensibilities, and a new way of Being.
If life were merely random, there’d be no point in cultivating new skills. And no reason to engage in financial planning. Our possibilities would be defined by our probabilities. On the other hand when nothing is certain, far more is possible. It is in this mood of uncertain adventure that we engage with our clients in conversations for possibility, for co-creating the future, and for reinventing their financial reality.
