How we interact with everything we have around us? How do we recognize the right solutions? How do we not get carried away by the easiest answer?

The “Warm Data’’ training with Nora Bateson taught me that you can discover many more options if you recognize relationships that are woven into the complexity of the issues we are working on. This process allows us to see new patterns and to respond to them with a much broader comprehension.

When we are angry about things happening in the world that we don’t understand, we often jump to the most immediate conclusion, driven more by anger than clear reasoning. But what may seem very obvious is not obvious at all. If you want to make a difference in your context, you have to let go of your convictions and open up to elements you hadn’t considered.

I read the story of Paolo Fanciulli and it made me think about how our evolution depends on our mutual contribution and understanding of interdependence. Paolo fighted against illegal trawl fishing and, in doing so, created an underwater museum with sculptures and deterrents that promote the repopulation of the sea along the Tuscany coast. “Casa dei Pesci” has become an underwater museum with many enormous sculptures resting on the seabed at less than 7 meters in depth, making them easily accessible. With a different way of reading the context, he created value at multiple levels.

The impact we can have on our surroundings is much greater than we imagine, and how we respond to challenges concerns not only ourselves but also everyone else.

We have power and as everyone knows: with great power comes great responsibility!
