New information

When we have a big idea. New information is not always welcome.

Why?

Because it doesn’t always fit with our existing narrative. The story we are telling ourselves about how we collide with the world. It might also challenge what we think we know, the expert opinion of the day, or how we do things.

So here is a filter to help when new information does arrive unannounced, and at precisely the wrong time.

What story are we telling ourselves and how does this new information change that story?

How does this new information change what we think we know?

How does this new information change how we do things around here?

If you haven’t already guessed it. New information is not the problem. But our big idea might be.

In fact, new information is showing us the way. And giving us another chance to examine, our story, what we think we know, and how we do things.
