Everything follows Why

Would writing a book be wasting my time?

Last month, I ordered and read the latest J.K. Rowling detective novel: The Ink Black Heart. That book has more than a thousand pages. Once again, I failed the whodunnit. Interestingly, she shares her thoughts on inspiration on the top of page 228 (hardcover). Her and my thoughts align. Despite having written almost 3,000 blogs during 2014-2022, I have no idea how...

Outsmarting

I have a friend who is clever, smart, and a professional. Nevertheless, I fear for his safety and so does his family. For some months, I have been urging him to relocate and find safer grounds.

Sometimes, we do not agree; then our definitions are not universal. Example: what is love? The ancient Greek used at least 6 different words. I suppose a main reason for negative or unknown definitions is our...

Drivers of Change: a 2022 update

Several of my blogs have mentioned the drivers of Change, which govern everything around us. Late April 2018, I published my initial blog Drivers of Change, which included a rather complex diagram. I suppose I was still arranging my thoughts. Today, I present a much simpler diagram. Perhaps, the single most important item in my diagram is the Blueprint of our...
