Have you noticed!
The 21st Century’s barely two decades old, but already it’s clear that this century is going to be a century unlike any other. Full of wonderful discoveries and inspiring opportunities. And, at the same time, a century that is and will be marked by radical changes and scary new threats. Across the world, we’re in the midst of a momentous transformation, an open-ended period in time when the entire world is making the shift from an industrial to an information society. This transformation isn’t and won’t be easy, and it won’t be quick. It will be the challenge of our lifetime.
For most of us, this transformation will be "unchartered waters." A step into an unscripted adventure that is, and will be, full of extraordinary opportunities and magnificent challenges. The phenomena that are creating this transformation -- trends like globalization, multi-ethnic conflicts, and radically accelerating technological advances -- are already pushing into our lives new knowledge and discoveries that simultaneously are both amazing and incomprehensible. In the face of all this radical, 21st Century newness, it’s obvious that none of us quite yet really know how to respond.
Which is why I started Transformational Learning Opportunities. I wanted a place where I could learn how to respond effectively to these new opportunities and challenges. A place where I could come to understand the newest insights, inventions, and advances that today’s scientists, entrepreneurs, and revolutionaries are creating. I believe we can benefit from all their work, if only we discover what to pay attention to. If only we learn how to translate their new discoveries and insights into productive ways of thinking, feeling and acting. And if only we can feel safe enough to experiment with learning how to learn while swimming in the uncharted waters they’re creating. Going forward, none of us can afford to sit back and hold onto old outdated 20th Century modes of thinking. So, welcome to Transformational Learning Opportunities! If you're looking for a place from which you can launch bold adventures and brilliant explorations, you’e found it.
