Environment done! Getting out more done! What about some personality
Language and identity
How do we cultivate these changes further?
Let’s develop some ideas about culture change a bit more. How are we going to move further together?
How do you want to be seen now, and how do you want to be remembered?
How do we filter those ideas into the work that needs to be done?
I’ll say it here and now; it is sharing information that is powerful not keeping it to yourself!
Ponder this scary thought, you’ve changed the culture, collectively and individually. When you finally put your ideas up there, what does it feel like? Ask any artist, writer, film maker, songwriter. Very scary but really exciting. It will be challenging or beautiful but not passive!
So what about habits?
Individual habits and they can change. They are the elements of a culture and they are a choice.
