It’s part of the reason why I have such little patience for the view that we all have one self-evident purpose in life and it is simply a matter of being brave enough to follow it. Whilst some may have the benefit of such clarity, that’s not been my experience and I don’t think I’m alone. I’ve found my way to where I am by trying stuff out, exploring adjacencies and pushing myself in new directions, which hasn’t always been comfortable but then real learning rarely is.
Many people choose the comfortable option – and that’s completely understandable. But it isn’t a viable option if your industry is going through digital disruption and you want to survive.
