If we think of the problems we face on a day to day level, they can seem insurmountable
– humans are using resources at an exponential pace
– unemployment in South Africa is over 26%
– access to quality education is an ongoing challenge
– economic inequality is rising between classes
– our health system has massive service delivery burdens
If we try to use linear thinking to solve these issues we won’t make an impact.
They need a new approach, a new way of thinking, a new mindset.
As humans our brains are hardwired to predict growth and progress linearly. It’s easy to plan. We go through the same routine each day and we can predict how things will go if we stick to that.
The challenge now is that the world no longer moves in linear fashion. It’s exponential.
That’s the rate of speed our technology, innovation, environmental & resource challenges, business models are moving.
Adjusting your mindset to an exponential one is focusing on growing by 10X instead of just 10%. Grand achievement vs incremental slow and steady.
Want to be as impactful and successful as Uber, Facebook, AirBnb etc? To fix these grand challenges we have? Your mindset, your work effort, your business model, your plan for growth has to be exponential.
The exponential mindset is the key to thriving in a world where anything is possible. It’s actually a necessity.
Don’t get left behind.
