Meeting the potential you

So I’ve done reading a book called “The Great Run” by Braam Malherbe. Now, this guy ran the length of the Great wall in China, all 4200Km of it in 98 days (it is actually over 20 000km long including all the sub branches of the wall). Apart from just the sheer magnitude of covering a marathon distance day in and day out, there was some valuable lessons in the book as well. Now Braam is no JK Rowling, but he pointed out a really important lessons that he learned from running the wall, that luckily he passed on in the book for other not to keen on running through China to discover it. 

Braam being the environmentalist that he is, pointed out how clear you could see the impact humans are having on the plant. From going days without spotting even a bird or any other animals for that matters, to seeing first hand the effects our farming practises have on once fertile lands. Braam rightfully points out that if humans put effort and time together, even building something of the magnitude of the Great Wall is possible, so solving climate change should be more than just possible in theory at the end of the day. All that is needed is leadership and the will from each individual to do their own part, and most of it can be achieved just by changing small habits in our everyday life. Recycle instead of trashing, buy organic (or even beter plant your own) and travel using as little fuel as possible.

Braam also highlighted his own dealings with various resentments and struggles with the lure of modern society in his previous life. Lily Tomlin said once, that the problem with the rat race is that even if you win, you are still a rat. Seems only a lucky few realise this before the wheel stops turning. Braam was lucky enough to have learned this lesson, even if it was the hard way of loosing home in the process. In the end, being close to nature provided the answer to his passions and happiness.

Braam talks about having learned that he needs to ask forgiveness,  most importantly forgive himself, and only then move on. This sound simple in obvious in theory, but is is as difficult as can be to do in practice. We humans have a thing for seeking acceptance for what we do from other and would be so consumed with this goal that we would be miserable in our attempts to please others. John Keynes said once, that in the long run we, we are all dead. Beter to be dead and happy than alive and miserable it seems.

Also mentioned in the book, was that one of the best drivers for his own happiness was the idea that what would you see, if all was said and done, if you met the person you could have been had you lived a life true to who you really are. I don’t know about you, but this idea is frightening to say the least. Might just be what is need to procrastinate a little less about things and sure some life editing will be at the order of the day for most, present company included.

So the question is, what would the potential you look like…

What would your GoPro Record...

So I watch a lot of TED video's on Youtube. and it got me thinking, shouldn't we approach things as if we want to appear on TED to talk about them?? This is setting the bar quite high I must agree, but maybe not a bad moon-shot approach to have?

Or even the following might work as well. I had a look at a video on Youtube about the kind of things people in Russia of all place have captured while riding in their cars. In Russia, because of all the accident that happens, most probably due to the bad weather, the insurance organisations insist that people have dash cams in their cars to help with insurance claims. Now apart from all the "drunken Russian" videos this has created on Youtube, the one I watched today was about people stoping to assist old ladies across the road. So my thinking was, before you do anything in life, you should be acting in such a manner that if you had a dash cam follow you around, you will be happy with the way you conducted yourself. Mmm, maybe GoPro is correct in saying "Be a hero" in your life!!

The another thing that struck me this week was Tigger from the Winnie the Pooh fame. Tigger (a tiger) is always full of energy, positive and enthusiastic about everything, jumping around on his tail and trying to get Eeyore to see the lighter side of things. Eeyore, a polar opposite of Tigger, is always pessimistic and gloomy about the world. We should really make an effort to be more of an "Tigger" about the world.

What would your TED talk be about???

Be a hero...

It is pretty interesting how the beauty of our world can be summed up with a five minute video on our interactions with the natural world that surrounds us. What a world we live in. 

Watching this got me thinking about All Gore's book called  "Our Choice", and must say solving global warming is quite simple and straight forward. Just need to get enough people to change a few habits, change how capitalism value intangible things and problem solved. We will however have to send all the disillusioned people on earth to another plant. Maybe a good idea to canvas more people to sign up for a one-way ticket to Mars..Why I'm saying this is that I've stumbled across a comment on an article today. The person stated that global warming would not be a problem. There are more populated tropical areas in the world than populated cold areas in the world. The argument goes that if these cold areas warm up, more people would be willing to stay there. There is the slight problem of low lying area (including many tropical area) that would be unfit for humans because it will be UNDER THE WATER. The other problem with  warming of these cold areas are that massive amounts of carbon that are trapped in glaciers and under ground would be released into the atmosphere, making even more places with mild climates barely habitable. The earth will be an interesting place if we cannot find an economic model that isn't based on carbon emitting fuel systems. 

Are we are going to hit some kind of an awaking with this whole global warming thing? Unfortunately it would have to be a awaking on a global scale, as people don't care if the disaster is on someone lease doorstep. 

What is your take on global warming??
