The butterfly effect, the narratives we believe in and more in this week’s #TheEdit.

  • Why some narratives are so easy to fall for. A conversation with Jerusalem Demsas about the misunderstood policy issues that deserve more nuanced analysis – The Atlantic
  • Epic battles for the ages. Illustrations to denote you vs me, good vs evil, us vs them, self vs world and more – New Yorker
  • In Vermont, a glimpse of a plant last seen a century ago. A plant thought to be locally extinct, false mermaid-weed, has been found through a chain of events that seems stolen from a fairy tale – The New York Times
  • Chaos and cause. Can a butterfly’s wings trigger a distant hurricane? The answer depends on the perspective you take: physics or human agency – Aeon
  • Face your fear of becoming obsolete. How to recognise what you have to offer,  regardless of where you are in your career – Harvard Business Review
  • How to slow down but achieve more, with Cal Newport. Slow productivity is possible, and it is better. But it’s a scary first step to get there – Financial Times
  • The visionary path: Shared dreams, common goals. Our world needs new dreams. Advisor, consultant and teacher Carl Lindeborg explores in an excerpt from his new book, ‘The Authentic Shift’ – The Beautiful Truth

“As more of us explore the inner world deeper and translate new insights into vision and action,  more enabling changes are taking place.”
