When I read the news today (talking mainly EU here), I start wondering how we will ever overcome this financial crisis? Somewhere along all those depressing statements, one has to say “stop, clear your head and think!”. I can’t loose the feeling that battling the crisis by mitigation measures is the only priority we define.
What will we do when we succeed? When every big company and even every family home is “economically dried out”?
Top priorities should also contain “new (means of) business” (in the broad sense). We should stimulate people in just going the other way, taking a turn and move on! Creating opportunities and motivating other people in doing great things. We should empower young people, allow them to develop some of their great ideas and we should focus on the “grey spots” in society where people with great ideas have no means of sharing them or even expressing their thoughts.
Our current approach is surely taking us into an evolutionary coma if you ask me… .
But, I’m not all negative of course. I do see a whole new year of novelty and surprises! We’re only day 2 and already I’m noticing a lot of people standing in the front of the line, acting like children at the entrance of a new playground.
Well, wish all of you a great and exciting 2012. Now let’s get busy and have some fun doing that! ;)
