With a bit of luck - Keeping on the right side of Murphys' Law - I will publish next week Book 2 in my series describing the shift from a machine to a network world will affect us.
Just as many of us have found that we Don't Need a Job to earn a decent living and to have a good life, many of us are also learning that just because the banks won't or cannot lend to you does not mean that you cannot get credit.
The barrier to accessing this new world of community based credit is Mindset. Just as it is Mindset that makes us so fearful of not having a Job. Many try and use the new tools in the old way - just like this with the same results:
It's 1940 - what do you see here and what did the French General Staff see?
A Tank right? This is a Char B. It was much better than nearly all the German tanks of the time.
Now let's look at the Germans at the same time.
Here they are about to launch the first Blitzkrieg in Poland. These are Mk II's a vastly inferior tank to the Char B.
This is how the German General Staff really saw them and how they were used.
A raging but narrowly confined Torrent that would destroy and disrupt all in its path - it is an idea all about controlled chaos. Only the German Army with their highly devolved culture that pushed command down could cope with such an idea.
This idea was truly "disruptive". The actual tools were inferior to the opposition. Their context was superior.
THIS is what my new book is all about.
It is a contextual guide that will, I hope, help you see the context and so the mindset issues that can either trap you or empower you.
Watch this space.
