Embrace the New / Let Go of the Old

  [Much of this column was originally published in the Sarasota Herald Tribune that is part of a series on the “loss of paradise” and the need to be preemptive in planning for the future.  This planning must no longer be the propagation of what was, what might have worked in the past, or as […]

We Must Let Go of Legacy Thinking!

    [As mentioned in the last column, this column was first published in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.  While it is about Sarasota and the Gulf Coast of Florida, the issues are national in scope.  The climate crisis, generational issues and the legacy thinking and legacy economics are relevant in the country and the world.  Sea […]

Earth Day? No it is the Earth Century!

This was my Earth Day column in 2021 NOTE:  12 years ago I wrote the column below.  I did it because I was getting pitched about Earth Day ideas I should write about.  As in people wanted to tout what they were going to do for Earth Day.  I simply lost it.  Don’t talk to […]

We the People of Planet Earth Can Lead Needed Change

We see the need to stand up – for the planet, for freedom, for the Ukrainians- both for our own integrity and the reality that transformative changes can occur when there are massive numbers of global citizens who are loud, collaborative and collective  in action.

We …….Are…….Demand!

Let’s own the power of all of us publicly standing up for Ukraine and cutting our use of gas so that the world will not need oil from Russia. All the talk is about Supply!  Supply!  Supply!  Oh, what will happen when the supply of Russian oil is cut off?  We need to replace the […]

I Commit to Doing This to Support Ukraine…………..Will You?

I commit to spending 10% less on gasoline until the Russians leave Ukraine. We are all living with the horrific and unnecessary suffering going on now in Ukraine.  The top to bottom tragedy is caused by one man.  A short man who is a dictator and who dreams of a long-ago evil empire and its’ […]

The Collapse of Legacy Thinking About the Workplace

In my last column, I explained why one of the forecasts from “A Look Into 2022 – A Split Screen Year” – the ascendent strength of Labor and employees this decade -was, in fact happening.  I mentioned in that column that what has been called “the Great Resignation” would be looked back upon as the […]

The 2020s: The Pendulum Swings Back to “Labor” and Employees

The 2020s is the decade of increasing power to Labor and Employees.  There will be much more evidence of this in 2022.*   There are a number of reasons why this will occur.  The first, and possibly most significant is that this is cyclical.  This reverses a trend of ever downward household income that began […]
