[Mathemagenic], quoting Robert Paterson (who, bless his heart, quotes Melville):
Theæ paradox is that in a turbulent time, the greatest risk is in hanging onto what seems safe. The greatest safety — to reach into the unknown. This is surely not only true for each of us as individuals but also for organizations.
This is but one important aspect of the profound challenges we face at every level — in making decisions in the face of uncertainty. More on this to come.
