…the High Speed Train to the Future of Work

An apt metaphor! Some people, of course, will choose to board a high-speed train that ends at Middle Street, where they will transfer to old buses and slowlyhigh-speed-train-207246_1280 reach their destinations. Others will board a high-speed train that zips past Middle Street and ends at their destination—the Future.

You might say that the first train gets you half-way to where you need to be but, the second train gets you to where you are going!

The changing world of work is like choosing to board a one of these trains.

The only question is: Will YOU get on-board the train to the Future of work?

Here are a few comparisons between the two types of people.

After 22-y of self-funding social improvement projects, I can say that if the wealth holders in our society would spend 40-60% of their income on social improvement projects, these islands would be a much nicer place. Whether it is building community resilience, giving voice-to-the-voiceless, or making visible-the-invisible, my project teams envision, innovate, and demonstrate community improvements, through inspiration, education, lean action and community synergy, focused in the areas of conservation, agriculture, and energy innovation. For several years I served on the Umematsu and Yasu Watada Lectures on Peace, Social Justice and the Environment, bringing voices like Frances Moore Lappe, David Korten, Richard Heinberg, Helena Norberg Hodge and Dr. Steven Schneider to Honolulu. I've been a social philanthropist in the fabric of the islands, via for-benefit, for-profit and faith networks. Change agent, strategic sustainability advisor, and inspirational public speaker, I've spoken to audiences across Hawaii's business, government, and educational sectors. Mixing a friendly approach, a professional curiosity, and downbeat humor, in my presentations, shift happens. At HawaiiReporter.com, I write about science, climate change, spirituality, and systems, and how these scale to social improvement.
