I love this season, because it whispers to us all about new beginnings. A whole new year; what are you going to do with it?

Over the break, then, I sat with that question. In practice, that meant thinking a lot about the future of NWSH.

In this instalment, I want to share some of my conclusions. That means this instalment is a bit inside-baseball, but I hope its valuable. I want to bring you all with me on the road ahead, and that means sharing my thinking on where we’re going and why.

The headline: it’s been an amazing journey so far, but we’re still at the beginning. In 2022, NWSH will double down on the project that’s always been at its heart.

Hit play!

Links in this week’s instalment

1. In 2022, as Gramsci observed of his own society in the early 1930s, ‘the old is dying, but the new cannot yet be born’.

2. I’d love to hear what you think of all this; the good and the bad. And most of all, I hope you’re dreaming up your own new beginnings for 2022 and beyond. If you want to share either, then just hit reply to this email — or find me in the NWSH Slack group.

Thanks for listening this week. And be well,

David.
