Hooked on short term thinking, we urgently need a sense of a longer now

Roman Krznaric , author of The Good Ancestor

First, thank you to David McWilliams for his interview of Roman Krznaric on his latest weekly podcast, one that has been a regular companion to me on walks during lockdown.

I loved the thought above from Roman in a short video on his website about his new book, The Good Ancestor, one I look forward to reading and promises to be full of ideas and framing for us to look into the future. In this he mentions the idea of “cathedral thinking”, an idea I referenced in an earlier post: “Planting trees you will never see“.

I love to work with #OpenLeaders allying where they are in the present and what they need to both see into the future and to lead others towards it. I look forward to reading Roman’s book and being inspired further around this and in my work for and with others.
