The fifth annual State of Green Business report, published today by the editors of GreenBiz.com, takes an in-depth look at the data behind the green business movement.

Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace - Albert Schweitzer

Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace - Albert Schweitzer | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

 

Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace.

 

I can do no other than to have compassion for all that is called life. That is the beginning and the foundation of all ethics.


Competition is such a virtue, and everybody's so busy competing, they have no time for compassion.

 

I can do no other than be reverent before everything that is called life. I can do no other than to have compassion for all that is called life.

4 Exceptional Resources for Storytelling Inspiration

4 Exceptional Resources for Storytelling Inspiration | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

Whether you attended the 2012 South by Southwest Interactive Conference or just followed attendees on Twitter, you know content, and content marketing in particular, created a good deal of buzz. Not surprisingly, along with an increased focus on content came pleas and how-tos for better storytelling.

 

While stories vary widely across organizations—from product and brand stories to those based on customer and audience interests—the art and craft of storytelling must be honed regularly, especially in an era of consistently evolving technology. In that sense, nothing beats regular practice.

 

But not far behind is the act of consuming stories—that is, regularly reading, watching, and listening to the work of today’s best. For that, I’ve put together this list of (mostly nonfiction-based) storytelling resources content professionals should follow if you’re serious about finding and telling stories that will have an impact:

Where Economic and Environmental Prosperity Meet

Where Economic and Environmental Prosperity Meet | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Overdeveloped countries, including the United States, need to adopt a strategy of economic "degrowth" to limit ecological collapse and severe climate shifts. This does not mean stagnating economic development; it means cutting down on waste and overcoming the social pressure to accumulate material wealth at the expense of others' well-being.

Author/activist Bill McKibben says...  And so one of the things that’s next for us is just remembering that even if we manage to stop this pipeline, it doesn’t really stop global warming. Not even anywhere close. It’s one skirmish in a huge, huge war. I guess what’s next, in a sense, is trying to figure out how you go from playing defense to playing offense.

The Power of Storytelling

The Power of Storytelling | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

Storytelling is a form of selling. It allows us to use the old and familiar as metaphors to help us determine the right course of action when facing the new and different.

 

Choose the story and you control the metaphor.

 

Control the metaphor and you strongly influence the conclusion that will be reached by the listener.

An elegantly powerful salesperson is one who leads you to believe you made the decision entirely on your own.

 

This is the power of Once Upon a Time…

Storied Nature of Human Nature

Storied Nature of Human Nature | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

...interesting to observe that the way humans tend to answer such big questions is through stories. For generations, humans gathered around hearth and fire to tell and retell stories. Much of cultural transmission was in the form of storytelling. Today, people are more likely to gather around the cool glow of the television or the computer screen, but we are no less storied creatures.
