Back in 1964, when the civil rights movement was gaining speed, social injustice was high and significant change was on the horizon, a lone voice sang: “For the times they are a-changing”. Riding upon the unvoiced sentiment of the public, Bob Dylan created an anthem for change.
Step forward little over half a century and Dylan’s song could still be the anthem of our time. A wise man once quoted there are three things in life which are certain – taxes, death and change. Though whereas once change came with certainty; we’re living in a new norm and uncertainty is the word.
Because whether it’s Brexit, an act of terrorism, or social uprising; this is the nature of the world now. An increasingly complex and demanding world where unprecedented change can happen in a short second. Planned or unplanned, as often is the case in today’s volatile climate, we must ride, live and thrive in this new landscape.
