Create a Better Tomorrow

As explained in this wonderful TED presentation, we have to creatively build a better tomorrow. To do this, as is eloquently explained, we have to dare to be wrong. I encourage you to watch Ken Robinson’s talk about Creativity. Enjoy – this is what we need to do so we can create interactions so everyone and everything benefits!

Time to Go All In to Help Everyone & Everything Benefit

In this linked Steve Howard TED Presentation, he explains how IKEA has gone all in for sustainability and encourages us to do the same. As he describes, going all in yields the greatest benefits for everyone and everything. Also as I have noted before and he explains, going all in means they will go beyond sustainability to being restorative and regenerative.

There is great overlap with his message and the aim of Positive Health Leadership. I encourage you to listen and  plan how you can go all in for positive health so everyone and everything benefits. Realize going all in will help you experience selfish, selfless, synergistic benefits!

Its not about Paying More – It is about Creating Better!

Last week I attended a presentation about Corporate Social Responsibility. It was impressive how some of these companies are doing things to make things in sustainable ways while paying living wages. The message however was that we have to pay more for our goods to support these noble efforts. I disagree.

I disagree for a few reasons. To me, if they want us to buy their goods instead of from others who are doing things traditionally, they need to be better. I do agree we should support doing the right thing but not to get the same thing for a higher price. In all that I have read and learned, doing things in line with nature or in sustainable/restorative ways will save money. As Interface Global carpet company has shown, they can do do better by doing good. (I linked you to a presentation I did about Interface’s efforts) I encourage you to review their story here. They grew their company dramatically while becoming a sustainable and  restorative company.

The ideas were also discussed extensively at the 2013 Purdue Deming Conference

their theme was New Thinking for a Sustainable World. To me W. Edwards Deming, the quality management giant, promoted Green or sustainable practices. I recommend you go to the institute created for him at deming.org to learn more. There are many books about him that are good. America first learned  about him from the 1979 TV show, If Japan Can, Why Can’t We. His books include New Economics and Out of Crisis.

In other words, I am suggesting we must not only do things right in selfish, selfless, synergistic ways that benefit everyone and everything, our efforts must produce better results so we can Exceed Expectations (see linked video). As described, this is to Practice Paneugenesis (see linked video). By doing this better outcomes that produce comprehensive benefits will just happen.

Lets Start (Continue) this Positive Health Movement

Yesterday a student shared  a great TED video by Derek Sivers, How to Start a Movement. I encourage you to use one of these links to watch this 3 minute video. As he points out, the key is our effort and the courage to start and act.

This movement where you take actions so everyone and everything benefits is necessary, let me know how I can help!
