When I think about what the world needs most and what I need to do to contribute to at my highest level of capability I think about what we need more of not what we need less of!

Yet, quite frankly the world is in too much danger to simply aspire just to do less damage. We need to do more. Much more. We need to create a vision of the world we want after we stop global warming, eliminate toxic chemicals and reduce health care costs, etc. To create a possibility that both fulfills our highest potential and ensures there is a sane, safe and decent place for our children & grand children requires we envision a world that has yet to be born.
