What is resilience?

What is resilience? | MidMarket Place | Scoop.it
Over the past decades, few concepts have gained such prominence as resilience. There has been an explosion of research and policies into ways to promote resilient systems, but the content has often lacked a clear definition of what resilience actually means, let alone how to apply resilience thinking.
 
Planetary boundaries
One of the most significant attempts to provide scientific guidelines for improved stewardship of the planet is the planetary boundaries concept. It was first presented in 2009 by a group of 28 renowned international scientists. They argued that if humanity stays within these nine boundaries we can continue to develop and thrive for generations to come. Crossing them could generate abrupt or irreversible environmental changes. In 2015, an updated version was presented. The new study warned that four of nine planetary boundaries have been crossed as a result of human activity: climate change, loss of biosphere integrity, land-system change, altered biogeochemical cycles (phosphorus and nitrogen).Two of these, climate change and biosphere integrity, are what the scientists call "core boundaries". Significantly altering either of these "core boundaries" would drive the Earth System into a new state.
The concept has been criticized for not being well adapted to policy although it was first and foremost designed to advance Earth System science. However, it can be used as a framework to guide the formulation of new Sustainable Development Goals, which are to replace the Millennium Development Goals after 2015.  Read more: click image or title.

Cooperation for the Network Era

Cooperation for the Network Era | MidMarket Place | Scoop.it

Cooperation makes more sense as the term to describe working together in a networked and non-directed relationship. This is an important distinction from collaboration. For example, Jérôme Delacroix also sees cooperation as the suitable term for what we do in networks [in French]. Jérôme explains why his site is called Cooperatique and not Collaboratique – collaboration happens around some kind of plan or structure, while cooperation presumes the freedom of individuals to join and participate. He also says that cooperation, not collaboration, is a driver of creativity. It is difficult to be creative while collaborating, because the objective has already been established.

5 Curation Habits That Can Change Your Content Marketing

5 Curation Habits That Can Change Your Content Marketing | MidMarket Place | Scoop.it
I am inspired by curators—and it is a relevant idea for marketing. The business world has been increasingly turning towards curation as a way to add meaning to marketing. I often describe it as the forgotten side of content marketing. Amidst all the discussion about creating great content – who will take on the valuable role of just helping us to find the great content that already exists on the web or otherwise?

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, January 20, 2016 6:44 PM

There are five key dynamics that set successful teams apart from other teams at Google:

 

  1. Psychological safety: Can we take risks on this team without feeling insecure or embarrassed?
  2. Dependability: Can we count on each other to do high quality work on time? 
  3. Structure & clarity: Are goals, roles, and execution plans on our team clear? 
  4. Meaning of work: Are we working on something that is personally important for each of us?
  5. Impact of work: Do we fundamentally believe that the work we’re doing matters?

Real Economy Lab is a new initiative aimed at building coherence for the global movement to an equitable and regenerative economics of the future using collective intelligence to ensure the impact of the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
Our first, and current task is to create a mind-map of the international new economy ecosystem. We are currently undertaking a survey of hundreds of ‘tribes’ around the world who are part of that new economy ecosystem. The survey will seek to understand how groups and organisations carrying out these efforts can be mapped, what their connections are, what matters to their work and how they trying to achieve their aims.
The aim of the lab is to build a participatory platform which provides a unifying picture of the projects, ideas, movements and networks offering viable alternatives to the faltering status quo, and to present this as a compelling case for wider strategic collaboration, coordination and support by all stakeholders.

The 20 Habits of Eventual Millionaires — Life Learning — Medium

The 20 Habits of Eventual Millionaires - Life Learning - Medium
This is the wrong question. It’s upside down.

This is a tacky question. This is sort of a rude question.

Actually, the question was a bit worse. It was “I’m in my 20s — can someone in their 40s tell me what I need to do to become a financial success?”

Maybe don’t look for shortcuts. Too many shortcuts is “death by a thousand cuts”.

Here’s a question: I’m in my 40s, can someone in their 20s tell me how to restore that feeling of lightness, no obligations and the feeling that “Enough” is a Feast?

Answer me that.

Here’s a question: I’m in my 20s, can someone tell me what success is?

Here’s another question: I’m lonely, can someone tell me how a ray of sunlight can remember that by itself it is nothing, but together it’s the Sun?

But ok. Another friend of mine wrote a good post on this topic. But I know him and how he made his millions and although his answer was good, it wasn’t how he made his money.

Money is not everything. It’s a side effect. It’s a byproduct. It’s nuclear waste after all the energy has already powered the Earth.

Focus just on the habits. Only the first half of the question.

Everyone needs different habits. If someone has an arm amputated he needs a new arm. Another person might need a new eye.

Another person needs to listen better.

20 Habits...    Read More: click image or title.

Ultimate Guide To Creating A Great News Page via @mkramer

64 Ways To Think About a News Homepage - TheLi.st @ Medium - Medium

This has to be the most comprehensive, well thought out post we've ever seen on creating a news page. They focus on "news homepage", but the lessons apply well to a page every website needs - News. 

News is becoming increasingly important. We are drowning in information, but your ability to filter, curate and share what is really important builds following, increases traffic and shares. News pages need to be constructed in particular ways to as the post points out.

Build in some Feedly, Twitter widgets or Buzz Sumo (or other ways to make the page ping automatically. Don't go 100% feeds since that opts out of the principal benefit - showing your ability to filter, curate and influence by what you choose.

Best curator at exposing his filter preferences and building substantial following I know is Brian Yanish at Marketing Hits (@Marketinghits). 

Create a great news page, have some of it fire with a robot and curate the rest and your following, traffic and return will grow.
