“May you live in interesting times.”
Actually it’s not a Chinese curse at all, it’s an old English expression.
Nevertheless, we happen to be alive at a time when:
— Our desire to achieve “mega” success is high, and the formula we use to get there is obsolete.
— Our trusted sources for factual information are no longer reliable.
— The past rules that define how the game is played are suddenly ok to break.
— The “go to” people that always pointed the way no longer have a clue.
Truth is, it’s not hopeless, and you’re not helpless. There’s just a new Chinese curse:
“May the days of doubt and uncertainty provoke you to look outside the boundaries of a box that no longer contains the answers.”
