Distinct thoughts sometimes get the buzzwords that put them in ...some sort of order, VUCA is such a buzzword which means- volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. VUCA kind of fits almost everywhere in life, work, relations, and nearly everything in general. You have a problem? Try to think in this framework, and I am sure it will make some sense. It makes sense, most certainly, in stock markets. These words have been defining stock markets for a long time in investing literature. Volatility and uncertainty are synonyms to the stock market, by the word uncertainty - the first thing that comes to my mind is physics and by the word complexity - algorithms. Ambiguity makes me think about logical fallacies. Hardly a day goes by when I do not hear about these words at work, but probably, I never thought about it together in this way and that it might mean something sounding so deep. We also interpret the words differently based on what we have seen and how we have been trained to think, you might think differently about these words but together they convey a powerful framework, irrespective of how you think !
We live in a VUCA age, or better - we have always lived in VUCA age !
