He isn’t quite my name sake but Oscar Wilde once said “the rational man looks at the world as it is and adapts himself to it. The irrational man looks at the world and adapts it to him self. Therefore all change depends on the irrational man.” A good place to start would be teaching irrationality.
It got me thinking. The problems and challenges we face in moving to a sustainable future on one planet need us to both adapt ourselves and adapt the world.
But I can relate to the statement “all change depends on the irrational man”. The irrational man changes the world and the rational man adapts himself to it, therefore we need the irrational man to change the world first and we need rational man to change himself. We need both but the changes we need will be led by the irrational man – the entrepreneurs.
