A boundry exists between a system and it’s external environment. How we behave at the boundry is significant.

1. When the boundry condition is fear it leads to building fences typified by confrontation, driven by a short-term view, focusing on existing patterns, resulting in conservative agendas. Process improvement is seen as the best way to move forward. There is a belief that competition is the underlying paradigm. Rules and plan are relied on to promote growth.

2. When the boundry condition is wonder it leads to building bridges typified by conversation, driven by a long-term view, focusing on new patterns, resulting in progressive agendas. Disruptive change is seen as the best way to move forward. There is a belief that cooperation is the underlying paradigm. Emergence is relied on to promote development.

Which system would you want to be a part of? It all begins with how you approach the boundry (the unknown), with fear or wonder!
