There is often a deep sense of urgency to act quickly, efficiently, and effectively when trying to solve the world’s greatest problems.
We’re constantly hunting for the silver bullet solution that will accelerate change to prevent the looming disaster we feel is right around the corner.
But if we look back in history, so many of the very problems we’re trying to solve for are the unintended consequences and collateral damage of rapid and exponential growth.
Could it be that growth-hacking social change is the opposite of what we should be doing? Could it be that urgency and anxiety is the opposite of what we need?
What would it look like if we approached social change like gardening? Nurturing, iterative, and seasonal.
Perhaps, something to think more about.
