Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.

Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kill countless ideas and splendid plans:

That the moment one definitely commits oneself
the Providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one
that would never otherwise have occurred.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.

Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Begin it now! - Goethe

Bucky. Always so good.
Ephemeralization, a term coined by R. Buckminster Fuller, is the ability of technological advancement to do "more and more with less and less until eventually you can do everything with nothing," that is, an accelerating increase in the efficiency of achieving the same or more output (products, services, information, etc) while requiring less input (effort, time, resources, etc). Fuller's vision was that ephemeralization will result in ever-increasing standards of living for an ever-growing population despite finite resources.

So, what can we learn from Bucky?

Great post on building orgs and things that last 1000 years. Has some really good anecdotes from history.
Exhilarating talk about how to preserve values over the long term (centuries/millenia).

...culture is a sedimentary rock laid down by the processes of politics, from public hygiene to the existence of trade.
