Why we should follow our curiosity not passion, how organisational wellbeing has become a business imperative and more in this week’s #TheEdit.

  • Organisational wellbeing has become a business imperative. With an estimated six out of ten employees experiencing mental health issues, change needs to be systemic – Raconteur 
  • We should think of our world in terms of processes, not objects. To improve science, public policy and interpersonal relationships, Professor Thomas Nail makes the case that we should think in terms of interwoven systems that are constantly subject to change – Aeon Video 
  • Activist investors are becoming tamer. But it’s crucial that they don’t peter out altogether – The Economist
  • Invention is overrated and implementation is underappreciated. Derek Thompson makes the case that we’ve overlooked the most important part of human progress: implementation – The Atlantic
  • The International Space Station demonstrates why collaborating with competitors is so important. Not only does working together with adversaries work, but it is key to making progress – Financial Times
  • A steep crypto sell-off illustrates the risks of digital currencies. A ‘perfect storm’ of fear and panic saw a meltdown that gained momentum this week – The New York Times
  • We should follow our curiosity, not our passion. Passion isn’t something you pursue, but rather something you discover by following your curiosity – Unmistakable Creative 
  • Intangible assets make up a critical part of our economy. We spoke to Jonathan Haskel about the future of the intangible economy – The Beautiful Truth
