Uncertainty is everywhere
I’m Vaughn Tan, a strategy author, consultant, and professor. For more than a decade I’ve been thinking about uncertainty in daily and work life: how we barely understand the state of not-knowing, and how we often confuse it (fatally) with risk.
The Uncertainty Mindset tries to make sense of uncertainty and, frankly, whatever the hell it is I get interested in.
In the first year of the Uncertainty Mindset, I sent out a newsletter every week focused on some aspect of uncertainty. You can navigate the first year of UM using this an annotated topic/issue overlay.
“A rare combination of insight, originality & applicability.”
“Every issue changes my mind about something fundamental.”
“So refreshing, finally content worth reading!”
“A++ stuff on developing an uncertainty mindset delivered to your inbox.”
My first book, also titled The Uncertainty Mindset, is a behind-the-scenes look at cutting-edge high-end cuisine … and what it can teach us about designing organizations to be more adaptable and innovative. You can get it here.
I also developed a self-training tool for productive discomfort called idk. You can get it here.
