CHOOSE YOUR THOUGHTS

CHOOSE YOUR THOUGHTS

As consumers, we are inundated with ads and commercials. As followers of twitter and Facebook, we are bombarded with posts and tweets. Sitting down in our couch, we watch TV, we are flooded by breaking news and expert analyses of situations and crises. We even pay for blockbuster films and trendy restaurants. Do we ever take time out to wonder about how any of this makes us feel? Are any of these the highest expression of ourselves? Can we do something about it?

Well... yes we can.

ENTREPRENEURIAL VISION - A SPIRITUAL CALLING

ENTREPRENEURIAL VISION - A SPIRITUAL CALLING

I have always been interested in “sustainable” as it could pertain to economy and business. I am therefore interested in “Holistic” as it could be related to industrial and business management. After all, what is good for individual health, or the agricultural industry should be good for business health.

The first thing to understand about “Holistic” is that it is a concept; it is neither an idea nor a recipe. It has no “RIGHTs and WRONGs”, no “DOs and DON’Ts”.

This concept, I believe can only “felt”. I cannot be understood as math or logic can. It is of “Essence”, of “Being”, not of any metric or of any action.

I will draw here a parallel between living, breathing organism, and a business. A business is an entity of its own. It has a legal existence, owns things, acts, and sometime spawns and reproduces (especially in Franchise business models). It can be sick, and when it is, “doctors” are called to diagnose and cure the patient. Sometimes they can’t succeed and the business dies.
