Am I In The VUCA World??
Am I In The VUCA World??2 mins 38 2 mins 38
Am I in trouble? Its highly unlikely I am not ... I am always in trouble. Sometimes for not speaking up, sometimes for speaking up too soon, too much.
I was brought up to be a honest, upfront human...brain got mapped that way. I was caught up in that mapping. I learned to appreciate things, people gestures..but I forgot to connect with myself. I learned how to identify other's trouble spots but when it came to mine I shunned my self out of my own mind. Well, that's how I was mapped.
You realize, I say was... I rerouted. And today I believe I am not just living but I breathe.. I am conscious of my inhalation and exhalation.
But in 1990s when I just finished my school ..I was told I am a trauma version of myself. I live in my VUCA world. Volatile, uncertain,complex and ambiguous... All that explicit in my mind.
You might say each one of us faces one or all of the challenges at some point in life or the other. But to be told "You're in your VUCA World " was confusing and unnerving. And twenty years later, they are talking of these managerial conditions. Examples include uncertainty, turbulence, rapid complexity, rapid change, dynamism, disruption, hyper competition, flux, high velocity and more. And more and now one is hearing of this in academic circles too.
I had these multiple worlds in my mind, forever. People sometimes ignored my sheer existence and sometimes questioned my real presence and me ... I continued to look for the lost fortunes in my VUCA mind. What is this place, how do I reach it, show it to others?
I think I need a decoder .. That will complete my story. When I find the decoder I'll tell the story...until then the search is on. As is the VUCA world !!!
