This blog is my chronicle of creating life anew around a new center. I write about business, personal growth, social technology, spirituality, marketing, and the world we are creating at the confluence of these forces. These are the things I have always loved; they are my loves still.
Intersections, crossroads, port cities are places where people searching for more life avidly seek. Culture grows and people thrive where new connections are made. How it happens is always a bit mysterious.
21st century business is this pulsing environment for me. Marketing is its soul, the force that transmutes human desire into lasting human development.
This is the age of the empowerment of the individual -- as consumers, as activists, as creators. Social technologies give us the power that feudal Lords, corporate behemonths and constitutional governments once kept to themselves.
With our newfound power comes responsibility. What is the world we are creating? Are we making the world that, in our hearts, we know we want? Or are we letting our new tools control us and leave us awash in junk?
Answering that question is what this blog is about. It's also what my life is about. I hope to share what I am learning, engage you in conversation, and inspire you to reclaim your deepest desires and use the tools at hand to help you realize them. Together we can make the world a place where people aspire to advance the spirit and culture of our nation and know how to build that seeking into their business and employment lives.
