When it’s chaos around here

We have two choices:

We can buy into the stress, the noise and the craziness and make it even more chaotic. That’s certainly how it spreads. It feels like the right thing to do–to join in on the anxiety. But it’s not. In fact, the anxiety doesn’t help anyone, and probably makes it harder for those in need. If you’re needed, then help. But if you’re not, if the chaos will get worse if you amplify it, consider a different path.

The other path is to take this moment in time to dig deep and figure out what’s next. In the middle of every market interruption, someone starts building a new market. In the midst of a career adjustment, new careers are built.

The altMBA has a regular decision deadline tomorrow. The session begins April 20.

We’ve engaged with more than 4,000 people around the world over the last four years. The altMBA is not an online course, it’s not video-based and it’s not for a grade. Instead, we’ve committed to finding people who want to work with each other in a journey to level up. You can do it from where you are in your career, and where you are in the world, and a month later, you will have learned a new way forward.

The magic of learning is that it’s yours. Even after the chaos subsides.
