Time to Rewrite The Story

We live in interesting times. Much like the (alleged) Chinese proverb “may you live in interesting times” which can be seen both as a blessing and a curse, we truly do live in a turbulent moment of our planet’s history.

Go to any news website, and you’ll be bombarded with headlines screaming the end of the world to you. Possibly rightfully so. Our amygdala-driven fight-or-flight mechanism gets kicked into overdrive. It leads to an unfortunate situation:

What’s weird is you can raise more money with past human failures than you can raise money with present human successes.

And this is a real problem. Not just for those fine folks who are working on building what matters and making things better — and have a hard time raising money for their vision — but for all of us.

It is time to rewrite the story. Let’s start leading not with catastrophe, but our narrative of building what matters.
