Excellent summary of the Underpopulation problem. feedproxy.google.com/~r/Newgeograph…
The causes of this radical change are diverse. But crucial reasons include decline of extended family support networks; erosion of traditional, often religiously based values; and a culture that celebrates individualism.
“No matter how many communes people invent,” the anthropologist Margaret Mead once remarked, “the family always creeps back.” Let’s hope she’s right, not only about the past but the future as well.

Thoughtful post by @johnsonwhitney to help launch 2013 > Instead of Making Resolutions, Dreamblogs.hbr.org/johnson/2013/0…
While resolutions are about "shoulds," dreaming is about hope — and who we may become.Dreaming is at the heart of disruption — it is only when we dream that we can hope to create something truly new, something that will overtake old habits, old customs, and old ways of thinking and being. And we all know by now that a disruptive path leads to a greater measure of success.

Seth: "New Year's resolutions rarely work, because good intentions don't often survive a collision with reality."sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/201…
when intentions meet the day - agency matters. no?


MY THREE WORDS FOR 2013Walt – as in Walt Disney. The concept I’m going to remember with this is multi-faceted. Walt believed in himself instead of worrying what others were saying. He was turned down for money to build Disney World around 500 times (all you Disney fans probably know the number by heart). But what I’m also going to remember with Walt was that he held tight to his vision, and he defined it so well that others were able to carry it on after his death. Legacy.
Ender – as in Ender Wiggin. The concepts tied into this is that Ender was a soldier, but a reluctant one. He had to learn how to be mentally tough, that complaining wasn’t all that effective, and that new ideas would face great resistance, even if they were correct. There’s a lot in this one, too. I seemed to go with multi-faceted words this year.
Monchu – it’s an Okinawan word that means something like “one family.” The idea is that you treat more people outside of your bloodline or your tribe as if they are family. This concept will remind me to work even harder on my connecting with value, my relationship-building, and my attention to people who matter to me. It’s probably the hardest one to put down simply, but that’s what I’ll be focusing on.

@pammoran Intuition? Under-valued in these performative times of measurables and deliverables …

Our anxiety about death is due to our misconception about life. HT to "dromd", whoever he may be.#foundoncommentsboard
