Conceiving Of And Responding To New Possibilities...
We participate in the forming of the future by virtue of our capacity to conceive of and respond to new possibilities, to bring them out of imagination and try them in actuality. ~ Rollo May

Manifesto: I Am Not a Brand

Manifesto: I Am Not a Brand | Conceiving Of And Responding To New Possibilities... | Scoop.it
I am not saying that it is a bad or dishonest thing to try to sell your work. It is not. What I am saying is that I am tired of the rush to commodify everything, to turn everything into products, including people. I don’t want a brand, because a brand limits me. A brand says I will churn out the same thing over and over.
Jerry Buchko's insight:

Yes. :)  Nice perspective piece explores the notion and lived experience of personal brands.

Debating the Sharing Economy by Juliet Schor

Debating the Sharing Economy by Juliet Schor | Conceiving Of And Responding To New Possibilities... | Scoop.it

"The “sharing economy” has attracted a great deal of attention in recent months. Platforms such as Airbnb and Uber are experiencing explosive growth, which, in turn, has led to regulatory and political battles. Boosters claim the new technologies will yield utopian outcomes—empowerment of ordinary people, efficiency, and even lower carbon footprints. Critics denounce them for being about economic self-interest rather than sharing, and for being predatory and exploitative. Not surprisingly, the reality is more complex." - See more at: http://greattransition.org/publication/debating-the-sharing-economy#sthash.N686T0lY.dpuf

Jerry Buchko's insight:

I thought this recent piece, by Juliet Schor of Boston College, does a great job of exploring the broader social and economic impact that these peer-to-peer enabling technologies are having, as well as the potential impact they may have going forward as we increasingly engage with one another within these sharing ecosystems, using these technologies.

One thing becomes apparent after the honeymoon of a newly-launched career is over: Your employer--whether it’s a scrappy startup or a massive multi-million dollar company--is not your friend. You are a resource. That means the only one you can trust, really, is you. Here's how to keep a cool head and stay in control of your career.

Secret Fears of the Super-Rich

Secret Fears of the Super-Rich | Conceiving Of And Responding To New Possibilities... | Scoop.it
Does great wealth bring fulfillment? An ambitious study by Boston College suggests not. For the first time, researchers prompted the very rich—people with fortunes in excess of $25 million—to speak candidly about their lives. The result is a surprising litany of anxieties: their sense of isolation, their worries about work and love, and most of all, their fears for their children.

Insights into the Promises, Benefits, and Limits of What More Money and Financial Wealth Can Offer Us

Some food for thought when considering the role of money in our lives... There's a pervasive cultural assumption in our society that having more money and wealth will allow us to realize more fulfilling and trouble-free lives, along with a greater sense of financial well-being. A unique and insightful study suggests that having a great deal of both money and financial wealth can certainly help with some, but not all, of life's challenges.
