The ultimate end of all revolutionary social change is to establish the sanctity of human life, the dignity of man, the right of every human being to liberty and well-being
A Shift Is Imminent:
People are taking action now more then ever. Groups and coalitions are formulating strategies all over the world to overcome our greatest challenges. Another renaissance is brewing and a great awakening is knocking on our doors!
There Is Another Path:
How did we get here? Things are a little ass backwards and some of us can't understand why, yet despite your belief about the cause(s)… The solutions seem to conclude similar results no matter the starting vantage. It's time to stand up for your truth and support what you know to be important.
“Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the danger of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of ‘crackpot’ than the stigma of conformity.”
~Thomas J. Watson
You Hold The Creative Power:
Isn't that why we are here? To experience this landscape and to add our individual creative input…Why have we seemingly forfeited this expression and allowed others to create a world of perpetual imbalance?
“Every man builds his world in his own image. He has the power to choose, but no power to escape the necessity of choice.”
It Takes A Village:
Unfortunately, it has become the societal norm to buck responsibility at every turn. No need to think, raise our own kids, grow our own food, take care of our health and so on... You are a part of this village and your applied talent truly makes a difference.
“A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.”
Teams Need Tools:
When 100's of voices are speaking, inspiring, inventing and working toward the solutions you are also passionate about, you need a way to streamline this activity into actionable concepts which can be defined and disseminated with ease.
“Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.”
The lens is too small for the scope:
No one individual holds the key to our future. Implementing the views of those who've convinced themselves they are superior will no longer be tolerated. Only when we can show there is a better way, and do it in mass, will the tides begin to shift in our favor.
“A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of others.”
Collaboration is the way forward:
Among many other principles such as transparency and integrity, collaboration is a must if we want to achieve long lasting positive social change in the world. If we want to maintain any level of independence and self responsibility we must first decide so, and then coalesce around the activities that will ensure that birth right.
‘One of the more easier to understand reasons we have yet to create the world we see from our minds eye, is because not everyone knows what the word collaborate really means, or believe they haven’t the outlet to express it”
Affirmations without activity is the beginning of delusion:
We all have our mantras. Some from deep within and some from our favorite pop song. We all say we stand for something yet many find it hard to contribute at the end of a long day. We need a facile way to take action and stand behind the change we want to see in the world.
“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.”
We are on a mission to empower project teams with tools and resources needed to
positively impact the world.
