I really don’t consider myself an environmentalist nut. Yes, I am very aware of our global issues but who isn’t? Now and then my avocation (wind industry) leads me to information that is really hard to blow off, like this.

A degree by degree explanation of what will happen when the earth warms

How aware are you of global warming? Think about your grandchildren-what will their world be like, if we only get 1-2 degrees warmer which is already about guaranteed? Don’t even read the projections for a more than 2 degree increase.

This is sobering to the nth degree. Read it, share it, wake up.

Now, for that engagement thing…when someone connects to a larger purpose their emotional connection therefore engagement levels ramps up dramatically. I’m lucky-I don’t even have to stretch to see my greater purpose. How about you?

Leaders and influencers-what things have you done, to help people connect to a greater purpose? How do you do it without sounding like a fringe evangelist?

UPDATE: Creative Tension and Education

leave a comment »

I pulled together Part One Education and Economic Issues and Creative Tension-Desired Future For Education added a whole lot to it and published a 7-page pdf on the Flawless-Execution web site, on the Greater Good corner.  

See the link titled  Education: Current State, Desired Future.  This white paper examines the current state of education and the long-term economic effects, and presents one possible solution to just a portion of the issues we are facing. As there is a good deal to do, it is my hope that the thoughts presented here will prompt other like-minded people to get involved to address these issues. There is plenty to go around, and I just want to do my part.

As a reminder, the premise of the “Greater Good” is that business and industry tools and techniques, concepts and philosophies can be directly applied to other areas—community, society, education.

Take a close look at the issues and the opportunities. You will see that there is no choice but to get involved.
