Navigating the Future

There is an old saying in the field of organizational psychology and human behaviour about the fact we “acquire our bad habits in good times and our good habits in bad times.” Well, things have been pretty good in Canada for quite a while now, so it’s not surprising we have developed some fairly bad habits. We should all be concerned about one of these bad habits in particular, which is our tendency to think we are doing better than we really are. In this regard, it looks to many as though Canada is suffering from a severely dislocated shoulder, which has, no doubt, been brought about by patting ourselves on the back too hard.
