One of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you don't come home at night.

“When you love someone, you do not love them all the time, in exactly the same way, from moment to moment. It is an impossibility. It is even a lie to pretend to. And yet this is exactly what most of us demand. We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return. We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity possible, in life as in love, is in growth, in fluidity – in freedom, in the sense that the dancers are free, barely touching as they pass, but partners in the same pattern.

The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what was in nostalgia, nor forward to what it might be in dread or anticipation, but living in the present relationship and accepting it as it is now. Relationships must be like islands, one must accept them for what they are here and now, within their limits – islands, surrounded and interrupted by the sea, and continually visited and abandoned by the tides.”

Newest issue of YES!: Together with Earth

So-called modern progress has depended on exploiting the Earth’s resources as if they had no end. We’ve lost touch with the ancient wisdom that we are partners with Earth and all life on it. Now is the time to reclaim our sacred connection with Earth, and to think deeply, radically, and personally about the best ways to keep this planet—and its millions of species—alive.

#ValentinesDay: The Empathic Civilization by +Jeremy Rifkin 
https://www.ted.com/talks/jeremy_rifkin_on_the_empathic_civilization  

"A new science is emerging whose operating principles and assumptions are more compatible with empathic ways of thinking. The old science views nature as objects; the new science views nature as relationships. The old science is characterized by detachment, expropriation, dissection, and reduction; the new science is characterized by engagement, replenishment, integration, and holism. The old science is committed to making nature productive; the new science to making nature sustainable. The old science seeks power over nature; the new science seeks partnership with nature. The old science puts a premium on autonomy from nature; the new science on re-participation with nature."

If everyone cared they would become bored and start killing each other again :p that's what we are we give our life to arrive to what we want and when we get it we destroy it ... so simple yet so complicated ...
maybe it's enough that those who matters care !

@Rdigital Life Interview with Ramona Pringle

Idea Mash Up with Tom Rand

Here are some themes that define my coaching/consulting practice:

The most competitive skill for the 21st century is agility which we define as resilience, responsiveness & reflection.

Too many people are associating innovation with clever or intelligent; innovation also comes from authentic curiosity and deep pain. 

We have to get better at suspending our need for immediate gratification so we can critically think things through for longer time horizon.

It is not about competition, it is about being in great condition.

This is not the age of information. 
This is not the age of information. 
This is the age of resonance.

Heroism masks design.

The most important app is your awareness as that informs the utilization of every other app.

Your competitive advantage is not where you work or what you do. Your competitive advantage comes from the accuracy of your interpretation of reality and the way you articulate your life experience.

You are not a node; you are a frequency. 

The soul of your business is the collective awareness & articulation of the individuals that make up the entire enterprise ecosystem.

If you want to change the world, change your life. 
Micro-shifts create macro-impact.

In all things circulation is much more vital than possession. Seek to be a conduit.

Knowledge has emerged from a solid > to liquid > to a gas. Our role as curators has merged from containing content to actually becoming the container.

We have come from a time of "think = learn" to a time where "feel = learn."

It is no longer country v. country or city v. city; today ideas are countries. 

My true north:
We have an imperfect but positive duty to seek our own perfection and the happiness of others.
Immanuel Kant

Favorite quotes:
We have an imperfect, positive duty to seek our own perfection and the happiness of others ~ Immanuel Kant

Life of a frontrunner is hard one; he/she will suffer & many of these injuries will not be accidental ~ Pele

People know what they do; frequently they know why they do what they do; what they don't know is what what they do does ~ Michel Foucault

"The best thing for being sad," replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” 
― T.H. White, The Once and Future King


Don't get involved in partial problems, take flight to view over whole problem, even if view is still not a clear one ~ Wittgenstein 

The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.
Charles Dubois

It would be difficult to exaggerate the degree to which we are influenced by those we influence. 
Eric Hoffer

Wind extinguishes a candle and energizes fire; be the fire and wish for the wind.
Nicholas Nassim Taleb

Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. 
Archimedes

Society needs visionaries of means not dreamers of ends. Once we have the means the ends will reveal themselves. 
David R. Hawkins

A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us. 
John Steinbeck

A culture is made -- or destroyed -- by its articulate voices. 
Ayn Rand


Favorite quotes from my friends:

Your ability to release the potential brilliance of the community depends to a large extend on the quality of interaction between individuals.

Mickey Connolly


Some people think you have to have a conversation to get work done; however, the conversation is the work. 
David Whyte

Now is the time to move from focusing on the dots to actually connecting the dots. 
Ned Kumar

Because learning is such a vital part of organizational survival, the CEO of the company needs to become the Chief Learning Officer. 
David Hodgson

Because resonance causes reverberation, alignment is occurring. 
Sandy Maxey

The faster change is taking place the more important it is we scope out the future.  
Nigel Cameron

"Mommy, does your heart remote control people?" Griffin Sertl (4)

(While I was putting on make-up) "Don't worry, Mom,   beauty will find you." 
Hannah Sertl (10)

We can never know everything in ourselves or others.
Eric Best
