Realism [Timeless Leadership Ep. #21]
with Kate O'Neill
This week on Timeless Leadership, the topic is Realism.
As we blast into the future together on Spaceship Earth, what awaits us? Everywhere we turn, there are examples of future states that are alternatively cheery or hopeless.
But Kate O’Neill argues that the future is not binary. In fact, there are many futures that await us; it depends on how we look at it. That’s the premise of her book A Future So Bright: How Strategic Optimism and Meaningful Innovation Can Restore Humanity and Change the World.
We can’t assume that the future is a given, nor that we don’t have the power to change it. When we operate in the realm of reality, we can choose the world we leave to the next generation.
