Today there is much to be anxious about when we get up each day. Uncertainty reigns as rapid change disrupts expectations and social norms. Global leadership is fractured and economic conditions fluctuate widely. Specters loom, from climate change to cyber-terrorism.

Or you can stare unblinkingly at this time of chaos and dig into the difficult work of building a better tomorrow.


We never really know what’s going to happen next; but if we focus on what we can control—and our own reactions to the world around us—we can find meaning and create impact, bringing to life the dreams we all share. – Robert Safian, Editor at Fast Company
