Floris Koot: Our society is fixated on controlled outcomes. It is fixated with makability of reality. It is fixated on success formulas. Schools makes us think in clear questions and clear answers. I once heard a student working on a real world assignment complain. “This is not a real client, this guy doesn’t know what he wants.” Who is lost here? We also plan for success, and accept targets that kill joy, sense, meaning and humanity, just for profits, most likely not yours. The hunt for ever better success strategies may just be a dead end road.
Enjoy the ride, nothing can be held onto anyway.
