We are already in a crisis. We just don’t know it yet.

We are already in a crisis. We just don’t know it yet.

Unless you had some reason to understand how tsunami’s worked, when the water went out at Phuket you didn’t know you were already in the middle of a crisis. That is us. When a once in a thousand-year disruption wave comes through, your ways of thinking about the world don’t work. As a consequence you are fundamentally inhibited from perceiving reality clearly. Your right brain might be screaming “alarm!” but your left brain looks around, blinking stupidly in the light, struggling to make sense of what is going on and trying to find some tool in its toolkit to address it. This is a mistake — it is the toolkit itself that is broken.

The first step to dealing with a crisis is recognizing that you are actually in a crisis. – Jordan Greenhall
