Worldview 2 for Planning and Action

Worldview 2 for Planning and Action

This is the second of a new worldview-based post series. It is intended for planning and action use by executives and managers. These posts offer an example framework that might be adapted by readers to address their particular needs and situations. Worldview components are updated weekly as needed. Planning and action examples will appear in each post.

A Worldview for Proactive Planning and Action

A Worldview for Proactive Planning and Action

My last post outlined a major change in direction for both this blog and for my related activities. The blog will focus on a weekly rolling worldview going forward. At the same time, I will begin offering coaching and support services along the lines of what I have done in past. This post is the first of the worldview series.

Big Changes Coming to This Website … and The World

Big Changes Coming to This Website … and The World

Big changes are coming to our world. Extremely big, and complex. So hard to keep track of what’s actually going on in this fast-evolving reality. Planners need some way to do this without spending huge amounts of time scanning, analyzing, and summarizing the torrents of information. I’m going to try to focus on this here as an experiment. Hope it works.

Dumb Advice: Stop Playing the Game. Just Stop.

Dumb Advice: Stop Playing the Game. Just Stop.

The “Deep State”, however defined, is clearly running much if not all of our world today. Not our mostly-selected officials. That’s just how it is. There is nothing much we can do about it. Or is there? Stop playing the game? Good luck with that. This is the game we live in. There is no other game. Yet, anyway.

Believing the Unbelievable? We All Do. Why?

Believing the Unbelievable? We All Do. Why?

I have always been amazed to learn what people believe. How could they possibly believe this or that, which I regard as unbelievable? With years comes wisdom, or at least a bit. Unbelievable? To me, but not to them. Why? Part of the answer lies in human nature. The rest lies in the fact that there are almost no real facts, just beliefs. Personal.

The Tipping Point: Are We Close To It Yet?

The Tipping Point: Are We Close To It Yet?

Do you feel that something very big is close to, or even now, happening? Many people do, including myself. A deeply troubling sense of angst, but about what? While there are always disturbances of some kind, this one seems – feels – different, and huge. Is there a discernable “tipping point”, or will whatever-it-is just sneak up on us?

Trust. So Important. So Hard to Gain. So Easy to Lose.

Trust. So Important. So Hard to Gain. So Easy to Lose.

Trust everywhere is being severely eroded. So much that I trusted in past has betrayed my trust. Hospitals and medical professionals, I trusted without reservations. Journalists, I trusted to report the truth. No longer … they have betrayed my trust. Politicians and government I have never trusted. Have we entered a trustless world? What does this mean for us poor trusting folks?

Signs In The Sky? We’ll Soon Find Out …

Signs In The Sky? We’ll Soon Find Out …

This probably belongs in a round file labeled “weird stuff” or “… hmm …”, but I simply couldn’t resist this rather amazing bag of serious coincidences. While everyone has by now heard of the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse, there is quite a bit more to the story here. New Madrid, MO. Seven Ninevah’s. Seven planet lineups. We’ll soon find out …

Coping: Plan A: Ignore. Plan B: Denial. Plan C: Smart?

Coping: Plan A: Ignore. Plan B: Denial. Plan C: Smart?

I used to think that Ignore/Denial/Smart responses were mutually exclusive endpoints in how we generally address very tough situations. Such as what’s happening today – chaos, power-madness, wars, disease, politics, … – and all proceeding unpredictably. No longer. I now see these as three essential process steps that can help each of us deal effectively – cope – with our own world mess.

Our Veneer of Civilization Has Become Frightening Thin

Our Veneer of Civilization Has Become Frightening Thin

Civil society seems to be disintegrating, not just here but all over the world. Does this portend a civilization collapse, or just a Great Reset? Is “civilization” simply a thin layer – a veneer – over the beast of humanity? Or is this simply a huge complex system reconfiguring itself around a new technological reality? Something very big is happening, for sure. Globally.
