The Edge Of Uncertainty
  • Most people do not like to be in uncertain situations.
  • Instead of an uncomfortable conversation, we would like to let the bad situation be as it is.
  • Instead of doing something challenging and creative, we would rather be obscure.
  • When things overwhelm us, we would like a simple, quiet way to deal with troubling matters.

We need to come towards the edge of uncertainty, the place we don’t like much, but which is full of growth, learning, creating and inventing. It is here when we toil that we find meaning, intimacy, beauty, love and vulnerability.

If we can find a little stability, we should move towards the edge of uncertainty, developing a growth mindset.
