I was at the HQ of Apple today in San Fran and all the innovation around me was so overwhelming! So inspiring! To me innovation is all about change. As a society however we are lost. There is one principle that underlies all efforts at becoming un-lost. Change. There are a million and one reasons why a person finds themselves lost, or feels lost, and a million and one solutions. But let me propose one theory: You’re lost because you’ve been doing something the same way, which used to work, but it no longer makes you feel the way it used to. The reason why you feel lost even though you have a job and a place to live is the same reason (i think) why married couples were once in love, and a few years in, wonder if marriage is all it’s cracked up to be.
Lack of change (specifically, progress) is the underlying, superficial reason behind why we get lost. The deeper reason is because we feel like things become pointless, meaningless, and we have no story. Thus there are two required components of becoming un-lost; Curing the superficial: introducing change and Curing the profound: finding your story. So get started!
