What Are Your Parameters Of Possibility?

Okay, we know we live in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) world. A statement of fact: in the past two years we have experienced an exponential rise in VUCA. How can you make plans and reach for goals in a VUCA world? For every project or goal figure out your parameters of possibility. Ask yourself this question: Under the conditions as they exist right now, what can I  accomplish?

Setting the parameters helps you stay focused on the task at hand. One more thing: when thinking of the parameters of possibility, keep in mind you should always venture out of your comfort zone. You can easily box yourself in with parameters that are so “tight” that you never try anything new. ALWAYS live on the outskirts of your comfort zone so you can constantly grow.

About Tom Butler, Ph.D.

I believe that public education is for the public good and that education should be uncompromisingly learner-centered. The New Learning Ecosystem points us away from the old model of education that does not serve kids well. All educators regardless of where they work can help lead and contribute to the New Learning Ecosystem.
