The Power of Intention to Spark Evolutionary Change

The Power of Intention to Spark Evolutionary Change | Transition Culture | Scoop.it

Over my lifetime, I have learned from experience that holding an intention for change can result in creating the desired change. I have seen it work in bringing people and relationships into my life, creating the work I desired, and helping me develop a path forward to create the change. Essentially, I learned that if I could envision it, I could bring it into reality. It has worked so effectively that I know I have to be careful that what I think I want to create is what I really want or need.

The 6 Questions That Lead To New Innovations

The 6 Questions That Lead To New Innovations | Transition Culture | Scoop.it
It is often said that innovation is at the core of sustainability, but turning that abstract idea into action isn’t always easy.

 

As O’Connor worked with a team of MBAs from Hult International Business School to review the first 100 innovations, they quickly identified six questions that famous innovators have consistently asked and answered to generate ideas that can lead to new innovations.

These six innovation questions are:

- What could I look at in a new way? (Steve Jobs looked at the computer in a new way, leading to the Mac and the personal computer revolution.)
- What could I use in a new way? (Paleolithic humans turned fire from a scourge into a means of cooking, heat, light, and protection.)
- What could I recontextualize in space or time? (The Sumerians moved language from spoken to written form, expanding its power and reach.)
- What could I connect in a new way? (Thomas Edison connected the light bulb to the electrical grid, leading to electrified cities.)
- What could I change, in terms of design or performance? (Nearly 3 million years ago, the world’s first “innovator” transformed a simple rock into a stone hand-axe.)
- What could I create that is truly new? (In 1776, American colonists created the first “intentional” nation, based on specific abstract principles.)

Are We Part of a Single Living Organism?

Are We Part of a Single Living Organism? | Transition Culture | Scoop.it

"All life can be traced back to some single-celled organism in the early Archean sea. Today − nearly 4 billion years later − you and I find ourselves sharing the planet with elephants and whales, and over 8 million other eukaryotic species. Clearly, we’re all interrelated, but are we part of a single and absolute totality, a common being? Are we like the hundreds of different types of cells in our body that are constantly dying and being replaced, part of a complex organism greater than ourselves?"
