The School of Thinking TSOT

Journey of Agile  Complexity Surfers 


Creativity requires the courage to let go certainties. (according to Erich Fromm) 


Metaphorical*  creative approach to define a “Complexity Surfer’s Journey”:


1     play the infinite game,

2     relieve the turkey from its illusion,

3     figure out, how you can solve the ostrich’s


4     name the elephants,

5     discover the beauty in the beast,

6     with regard to your learnings, get into a conversation

       with the lion, the jellyfish, and the penguin,

7     explore the difference between a hedgehog’s thinking

       compared to the thinking of a fox,

8     never stop your journey as a complexity surfer. In

       doing so, you will find the black swan.
