John Hagel draws attention to the possibilities that always show up when we are able to continuously evolve our personal narratives, and acting on those along with others in ways that help us learn faster:
..most of us are pursuing personal narratives today that don’t provide a call to action for others to join us.
..if we’ve found a really exciting opportunity out in the future, we can become very motivated to ask for help from others and, if the opportunity is appropriately framed, it can motivate many to invest time and effort in addressing the opportunity. This helps us to get significant leverage and have far more impact than if we try to do it all by ourselves. If it’s a big opportunity that will take years to achieve, it can also help us to build long-term, trust-based relationships that will play a significant role in overcoming our fear.
