During the pandemic, the fundamental question became, what is the Unsettled Newsletter really about?

It’s about navigating 21st-century change. 🌎

I write about culture. I write about technology. I write about business. Sometimes I write about the intersections of all 3 (of which there are many, as my friend Chris Weir and I often discuss). I produce podcasts on all of the above and we’ve recently on-boarded impressive hosts in fields like neuro-diversitydeep changeeconomic development and HR in the COVID-era.

I recently wrote an ‘Open Letter to the Graduating Class of 2020,’ and it had a brief moment in the sun trending on LinkedIn. The assumption of the letter was that this is the strangest time to graduate in history: graduates of every kind are making one of the most important decisions of their lives (what to do next) based on the effects of a global pandemic. There is fear, trepidation and devastation but also massive opportunity. It was everything I wish I knew about life, business and purpose at 18. Here is one of the lines that struck a chord:

Life is hard, the world is messy and the future comes quickly.

It’s true. The rules of the 21st-century are vague and unclear (and sometimes-like in a pandemic-nobody knows what they are).
