Well… Looking at the above wording is where we need to be. WE NEED CHANGE. We are certainly feeling like we are existing between ‘a rock and a hard place!’
Changes are needed that we may have not have considered before – changes that we have played lip service to, and not put into action. Changes that will include subject matter such as ‘Climate Change,’ and being responsible and accountable for our resources, such as ‘our coast lines,’ and replenishing our ‘fishing resources.’ Humanity has plundered our seas which are being poisoned by plastic and industrial waste, and our water resources are under severe strain.
Sadly changes start to take place when we are uncomfortable enough to remove ourselves from “a rock and a hard place!” We know that this is not only a South African necessity. Globally we need to start truly considering taking better care of our wild animals which are being poached, slaughtered for ivory and Rhino Horn; our ‘fishing industry’ plundered. However, we now must add to this list, our women and children living with abuse; not having a proper education; added to which the constant fear of their care givers not taking full responsibility for having children.
The “Powers that Be” met recently in Davos… what came out of that? Not much… if anything! If we all should be as unconscious as ours and other Governments it will bring down great shame for our generation, for being unconsciousness and / or in denial. This is happening “ON OUR WATCH!”
I appeal to industry leaders and individuals to become more CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE
Ian Mann, was interviewed on Bruce Whitfield’s Money Show last week, and covered the subject of how to ready oneself for becoming innovative and creative. It is ‘stuff’ we all know, and yet do not do! 1) take time out 2) sleep well 3) eat healthily, 4) exercise. All critical factors to survive this economy ( that’s if you have a place safe enough to rest and take some time out?)
Feeling the brevity of our global situation, I put together a workshop on “Innovate and Think Out Of the Box.” I suggest that leaders who are guiding companies take charge, and include their Team Leaders, management and staff, in order for them to contribute to finding answers and sustainable solutions, to our dire situations, and become the leaders we want and need for future generations, in order for these generations to have a future.
We are capable of finding answers. Please step forward on behalf of your industry and business, and look for solutions that are sustainable to help our ailing economy, and world. Imagine what we could do if we all put our minds and knowledge to “INNOVATE AND THINK OUT OF THE BOX!”
