VIDEO: "The Story of Solutions" - Resolving the "Game of More"

-▶ TO CHANGE THE BROKEN SYSTEM, WE HAVE TO CHANGE THE GAME Published on Oct 1, 2013 Annie Leonard's back with another animated video, six years after the Story of Stuff came out, and after eight other short films. This time, she's talking about what we need to do to solve problems—and how we really need to reframe goals so we're looking at the whole system. The Story of Solutions explores how we can move our economy in a more sustainable and just direction, starting with orienting ourselves toward a new goal. In the current 'Game of More', we're told to cheer a growing economy -- more roads, more malls, more Stuff! -- even though our health indicators are worsening, income inequality is growing and polar icecaps are melting. But what if we changed the point of the game? What if the goal of our economy wasn't more, but better -- better health, better jobs and a better chance to survive on the planet? Shouldn't that be what winning means? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpkRvc-sOKk Guardian Sustainable Business, October 4, 1013 -▶ PROSPERITY WITH LESS: WHAT WOULD A RESPONSIBLE ECONOMY LOOK LIKE?

Self-compassion: More adaptive than self-esteem in sport & exercise?

Self-compassion: More adaptive than self-esteem in sport & exercise? | Leadership | Scoop.it
High self-esteem is a great thing to have, right? In sport and exercise, we think of self-esteem as vital in helping to maintain performance levels, as well as keeping up the motivation to push that little bit harder in the gym or while running on the soggy streets on a winter’s morning. We also think of performing well in sport and exercising regularly as ways of boosting self-esteem (e.g. Fox, 2000). Indeed, holding this assumption, as Mosewich et al (2011) note, there exists a body of research dedicated to identifying sport environments and instructional strategies to nurture positive self-esteem (Patterson, 1999; Weiss, 1993). The question is, though: are there any other types of self-concept that are as adaptive in sport and exercise, or possibly even more adaptive? A highly promising potential affirmative answer lies with a pretty new concept to Western psychology: self-compassion. By Fabio Zucchelli
