Accomplish More by Doing Less!

In his book, "Less: Accomplishing More by Doing Less" (2009), Marc Lesser (yes, that's his real name!) sets out clear and practical guidelines for breaking the addiction to busyness. It helps that he's a Zen teacher with an MBA. But his thesis is that we live in time, not through time. Living in time is to be bounded by "clock time". Useful in planning and measuring. But it's not the same as absolute time. Time which is unbounded. Timeless. We need to be capable of stopping. To view our life as part of this flow. Only then can we choose our aspirations and make a conscious effort to accomplish whatever it is we came here to do!

Five Minds!

In his book, "Five Minds for the Future" (2008), Howard Gardner laments the fact that much of corporate education is too narrowly focused on skills and competencies. "we don't think deeply enough about the human qualities that we want to cultivate in the workplace" he says. And now, post-GFC, it seems corporations still don't know how to nurture and cultivate those who are prepared to go beyond self-interest and do good work for society and for the planet.

End Poverty Now!

"The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world's problems."
