I know, it’s tough keeping the ‘to-do’ list in check during these distracting times, let alone the ‘bigger picture.’ although that should always be top of the list … where do I wish to go and how am I going to get there?
The humble to-do list will keep us on track for the more straight-forward tasks, planning for growth though, to a particularly flat market, during times like now, when we’re looking for other influences offering clarity and opportunity can be … challenging!
(Is that a strong enough word??)
Most of you know I enjoy the company of peers, I keep a handful of like-minded people close through regular get-togethers and I find the regular conversation helps enormously with the vision – the ‘bizability.’
I do understand that some people can’t see my routines working for them. I hear it … they just don’t make themselves available … ‘peers? I haven’t got time to stop work and simply chat. Business vision? I’m too busy to dream Charlie, I’m busy chasing my next best customer, new business.’
For some, they’re too tied up in the business to work on the dream, the BIGGER stuff..
Here’s what I see as utopia in the brave new world …
How about a community for the future, good-will to form part of the fundamental fabric of generations?
We’ll be ourselves valued, more appreciative of our close friends, more understanding of diversity, enabling a caring society for the well-being of all, eco-environment and community neighbours alike.
With advanced A.I., we would become more aware of ‘what’s possible for us,’ the BIGGER picture, perhaps independent, accountable governance, county boundaries focusing more on keeping local people safe, working on inclusive, sharing prosperity to benefit all.
We may even see ownership REPLACED by custodianship with less material values becoming commonplace. Each local business incentivised through belonging, cherished.
The ‘home’ county would be self-governed by a co-operative, supported by the popular vote. Trading in traditional, local expertise as well as the future opportunity by sustaining inter-county partnerships.
I dream universal freedom to travel to and from each county COVID free without concerns for health. International travel would depend on the greater understanding of universal passports when each partner (like-minded country) would be able to support the visitor to the same level of understanding as their home ‘status.’
Sounds right huh? Pie in the sky? Perhaps … what about you?
Just now though, it’s tough to be in a position to enjoy the dreamed-up utopia, although there’s one thing for sure … if we don’t embrace change, if we don’t dream BIG, don’t imagine, we won’t see the benefits.
Put dream on the to-do list.
