Dilemma is more than a choice, it’s an opportunity. It’s an opportunity to be open to all possibilities, all stories and all points of view. Dilemma is about proposing solutions by exploring the grey area, looking away from the paths that are already laid out and trying freely. It’s the opportunity to be amazing.
The dilemma confronts, questions, stimulates reflection and opens discussion. It is a moment that allows you to act with conviction, despite the uncertainty. The dilemma is destabilizing, confronting, intimate and common. It is necessary.
This twelfth edition of Pica magazine is an invitation to reflect and reinvent ourselves.
The goal is not to find an absolute answer, nor to decide between two choices; rather, it is to expose oneself to the world of possibilities that lie between the two. Taming the dilemma means engaging in solution-oriented thinking. It means accepting to be challenged and to be confronted with opinions that are different from our own. It is the conciliation of antipodes and the emergence of new associations. The result can take many forms, but it will certainly be personal.
What is your dilemma?
