  • Olaf shared from The Way of Nowhere: Eight Questions to Release Our Creative Potential by Nick Udall, Nic Turner
    The world is changing and it needs a new form of leadership that is based on a very different view of reality and consciousness from what is currently the norm. New technologies alone are not going to meet the challenges that face us; humans are. To do this we must start with the evolution of our own consciousness – we must lead ourselves. Once we have established a balance between interconnectness and separateness in ourselves, we can help others on the same journey of consciousness.

    Note: Good Question. Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals.

    imagine the superior business performance you could achieve by having people who actually understand each other,” and who can, by working together, achieve things that none of those involved could have accomplished while trapped in their own narrow perspectives.
    Note: Imagine, if people actually understood each other... A case for #Temenos.
