Looking forward to sharing some of the wisdom accumulated in building up ThriveAbility in the past few years, and whats coming next :-) Come and join us...14 Jan at http://bit.ly/1xKGPLh
 
A wise man once asked his pupil: Where does wisdom come from?
The pupil answered, correctly, Experience, oh wise one.
And where does experience come from, dear pupil?, asked the wise one.
The pupil was a little stuck with this one, so the wise man explained:
Experience is what one accumulates from many failures and a few successes in life, and experience teaches one what does not work, and what might, dear pupil.

What is THRIVABILITY? Have you ever thought about THRIVING in your life? Or where you mostly concerned with SURVIVING? 
Well, most of us are still in the surviving modality: being concerned about money, jobs, about the family, a constant effort to keep things going. And the idea of THRIVING belongs to a distant and unknown future.

Dr. Robin Wood ( +Robin Wood)  is Founder of the +ThriveAbility Foundation+.  The ThriveAbility Index and Assessment enable organisations to take transparent strategic decisions that enhance the thrival of their key stakeholders with a lower footprint through irresistible innovation breakthroughs.

Robin: My journey as a person,  the link to ThriveAbility, is the deep need I've always felt to be close to nature, and the pain I've always felt seeing the damage and destruction our industrial civilization has been inflicting on the planet, together with the growing, very serious dangers of climate change now looming over us.

Taking a careful look inside of all of us, I realised that we will need to motivate ourselves very differently in the future if we wish to survive as a species. This combined my lifelong interest in psychology, my passion for science with an aptitude for business and a love of all things integral, packaged into ThriveAbility.

About your hosts:

+Mark Davenport  is an American Midwesterner, frequent visitor to and now resident in Italy.  Degrees in English Literature and Secondary Education preceded a Masters degree in Italian Literature from the University of Wisconsin.  Years of teaching at secondary and university levels were followed by ever more “human interest” years as a certified drug and alcohol counselor, then to more mellow years in retail, culminating in more years as a “full time” retired Floridian before coming out into life again in Italy with years of philosophical, psychological and spiritual study supporting my passion to bring all that “head” knowledge to a practical emotional, physical and behavioral level where true transformation out from the decades of half-life so many of us experience.

The latest data from the sky....
The first global maps of atmospheric carbon dioxide from NASA's new Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 mission show elevated carbon dioxide concentrations across the Southern Hemisphere from springtime biomass burning and hint at potential surprises to come.

Augmented reality - is this one of the signs that we are knitting together a global (if still primitive) form of consciousness?
Last weekend, I sat down with a billion other people from across the globe to watch Germany battle Argentina for the World Cup final. In actuality, I was sitting in a room with seven of my close friends, but we all knew that we were a part of an event that had true global significance. So we ...

Dr Nicholas Beecroft is a superb interviewer, and I am delighted with the succinct way he nudged me into sharing my views on the Future of Western Civilization, as well as sharing what Renaissance2 has been doing to create ThriveAbility at a global level. Fun, insightful and full of ironic humour :-)

Story
Introduction
Bateson said, "The major problems in the world are the result of the difference between how nature works and the way people think." 

Together with a group of inspired omnologists, I am working on ways in which we can more effectively think about and engage with our global challenges so that we make the 21st century a century of breakthrough rather than breakdown.

And what; you might ask, is an omnologist? Howard Bloom coined this term to refer to those who seek omniscience (complete knowledge of everything in the universe), in order to bring back from the unknown things that benefit our species and our world.

In practical terms, that means that I am currently co-developing a new way of understanding and modelling our economies and businesses, such that we can co-create a more viable future on a smarter planet. I will shortly be releasing a speech I gave on this topic called; "Vision 2050- Co-Creating a Viable Future on a Smarter Planet". Watch out for this on YouTube and SlideShare. Thanks for reading this far, and let us all be the transformation we seek in our world, before it is too late.
