Numbers Will Never Love You, People Will

Simon Sinek has had a profound impact on why I do what I do.  I share his Start With Why philosophy every chance I get because I believe what he believes.  The greatest transformation is understanding that once an inspired individual is connected to their best ideas, the people and cultures they impact will create waves of change that ripple to distant shores.  If we connect with people that inspire us we will go to great lengths to help them succeed.

The Difference Between Good and Bad Progress?

One of the unintended consequences of travel is the opportunity to watch films on the plane one might not otherwise find.  Yesterday, I viewed the documentary Surviving Progress.  The film investigates the role of a consumer economy and our definition of progress.  An undercurrent throughout the film is the power of connection between individuals.  No amount of consumerism will replace the core need to be connected to those who believe what we believe.  Perhaps the greatest opportunity going forward is not for those who produce the things that fill our lives but rather for those who inspire the connections between each other.
