The next experimental step

Also on the topic of uncertainty, I like this interview with Brian Massumi, who says, “uncertainty can actually be empowering—once you realize that it gives you a margin of maneuverability and you focus on that, rather than on projecting success or failure. It gives you the feeling that there is always an opening to experiment, to try and see….The question of which next step to take is a lot less intimidating than how to reach a far-off goal in a distant future where all our problems will finally be solved.” A good question to ask yourself when dealing with uncertainty is, what’s the next experimental step I can take? Then take it and see where it gets you.
