If you care about Poverty and Equity in America, read this paper.  Struggle through it.  Don't let the pundits tell you what it means.  In there is the definitions of a vibrant community!

This image is iconic from my poi t of view. The "rugged individual" with the gun. The woman at his side. The fuzzy press in the background recording it for profit. We are a hula dance before before alien tourists who paid good money for an authentic experience.

+Gideon Rosenblatt wrestling with value: financial, human, intrinsic... A good read. The question that begs to be answered is "How do we realize value?" We inevitably retreat to realizing profit as the legitimate or ultimate representation of value.  Yet, our affective selves understand human value and love as the true representation of value. Do we need to lead these bifurcated lives? Can we build a word where love is more... transactional?
Organizations create intrinsic value by building meaning for customers and employees. #meaning #mission #value

Thanks for sharing this, +Steve Wright. And let me wish you happy birthday from Google+ land as well. 

I'll resist the temptation to make the joke about transactional love here. What you're hitting on here is absolutely key though. It's about shifting the frame we use to evaluate things at work. Sure, numbers matter. No money, no mission. But in the end, if there's not something deeper, then what's the point? 

I really like Dan Pink's frame for thinking about this stuff. For me though, it tends to come down to two drivers: love and meaning.

Ford answers Cadillac.

' "Why do we/I work so hard? For what?" For Cadillac, the answer to that question is "all that stuff." For Ford, it's "to make the world better." The justifications for a hard-working life are night and day, but neither ad disparages the slog itself. (This is intriguing on its own. For decades cars have been presented to Americans as recreational vehicles: Pop in your cassette—or, these days, plug in your iPhone—hit the road, and leave all your worries behind.) '

This is a truly exceptional school. Great teachers, excellent principal and very strong community. We have had kids at this school for 10 years now. The school has seen a lot of change in this time but the core of school has stayed solid and grounded. I attribute much of that to excellent leadership.
