3. Big Data

Since August 2023 we have been sharing some fascinating insights and trends about the habits in our society.  If you missed the first two posts about the findings, you can find them in our August and October newsletters  Here are some more interesting findings from our big data set.

As a community, Innovation is our third lowest habit. Propensity to Change is also amongst our lower habits. These two habits combined define how the broad community deals with change and how the broad community innovates. Our collective behaviour is soft on innovation and on the soft side of change. It is for this reason that change in business and government, social structures, technology, and operations at work are difficult to implement and the take-up is always met with a certain level of resistance. Businesses, governments, and technology companies must be aware of this. Change and innovation must be implemented with a soft and a slow process. Small steps must be taken and there must be full transparency on why the changes are necessary and what the process will be.

On a personal level, it must be noted that we are sometimes stressed just because the changes that we have to deal with exceed our habitual capacity to deal with them. What you can do is to take your Shadowmatch Results and look at your habit intensities for Propensity to Change and Innovation. Then ask yourself if you had to deal with certain changes over the recent six months or so. If the change that you had to deal with exceeds your capacity to process it, stress can stack in your life.

We are currently in a changing and very innovative phase of history. Technology that we use every day changes our lives. Think of ChatGPT as just one example. Maybe it is not a bad idea to get a coach and do a PDP on either Propensity to Change or Innovation. It can reduce the stress levels we experience as a community.
