Insecurity Anyone?

“When the forms of an old culture are dying, the new culture is created by a few people who are not afraid to be insecure.”

“…those who endure are those who are not attached to outcomes.  They don’t seek security in plans or accomplishments.  They exchange certainty for curiosity, fear for generosity.  They plunge into the problem, treat their attempts as experiments, and learn as they go.  This kind of insecurity is energizing;  people become engaged in figuring out what works instead of needing to be right or worrying about how to avoid failure.  Whenever they discover something that does work, there’s a huge rush of energy, often accompanied by laughter.”
