As we connect more the lines between us blur. The lines between individuals and organisations, between people within organisations, between work and home, between our inner worlds and our shared thoughts.
We are used to having those boundaries managed for us. The commute to work, the hierarchies of roles, time when we didn’t have access to technology, time when we could switch off. I see lots of signs of distress as we realise that those protections have gone or are disappearing rapidly.
We need to learn to draw our own lines. We need to work hard on working out where to draw them. We need to stand by them.
