Sacrifice for the Future #Blogg100

You must make sacrifices [Is our life to comfortable?]

Tonight I saw 2 things about Sacrifice

First was the latest episode of Revenge: Sacrifice

“Sacrifice by its strictest definition
takes something precious for the appeasement of a higher power
An abiding devotion to a cause that cannot be satisfied with a simple promise.
Because an oath, no matter how solemn, asks nothing in return
While true sacrifice demands unspeakable loss” — Emily Thorne

“Sacrifice demands the surrender of things we cherish above all else.
Only out of the agony of those losses can a new resolution be born.
An undying devotion to a cause greater than one’s self.
And a moral duty to see a journey through
To its absolute completion.” — Emily Thorne

Only out of agony of these losses can a new resolution be born

Only out of agony of these losses can a new resolution be born

Build community

Jonathan Haidt speaks of why communities that asked you to Sacrifice something last on average much longer than those who don’t. And communities we must build

“To build a community that lasts you also have commit to it and sacrifice something on the way. The more you do this the stronger the community will be and is much more likely to last longer. This is the type of Community that Religion has provided for humanity in the past and still does in large parts of the world.” — LordSillion

The Ultimate Sacrifice

Must you sacrifice everything for a new future? No! It’s never going to be like in this commercial from the Superbowl about The Rainforest Alliance. The future is about building a new community together. We are going to need to make sacrifices. But we do them together. And from them a new resolution will be born!

Let’s do this!

“Without pain, without sacrifice, we would have nothing” — Tyler Durden

How should we Row together #Blogg100

#073 [LXXIII]
Row, row, row your boat [Det är inte dom som ror, ror så att svetten lackar]

This week is Social Media Week so there will be allot of that in the blog.

Roz Savage Ocean rower

Today I was inspired by Roz Savage, who has rowed over 24 000 km over the worlds 3 big oceans. We can all help building a better world together one oar stroke at the time as she explain in her video below.

If we all row together our distance will start adding up very quickly.


Reshaping the narrative of the sustainability movement

I have also been following some of Social Media Week from Copenhagen with the common theme: Why we love companies with a purpose

I can recommend Laura Storm talking about #Sustainia. Her talk starts 27 minutes in here: Reshaping the narrative of the sustainability movement.

How shall we tell the Story about our own future?

And Yar! I am a Pirate! And a Ninja too 😉

Do you have a Contingency plan? #Blogg100

#079 [LXXIX]
Why Hearts and Minds?

“Hearts and minds… Far more effective than bombs and guns…” — Continuum

I have been watching 6 episodes of Continuum so far. In the future Mega-Corporations has taken over the role of nations and rule all without insight. A small group of rebels travel back in time make sure that future does not become like this. I like Science Fiction that makes me think. And now they started to whip up a message in this one too.

We need to hold everyone who plunder the world for their own personal or corporate gain accountable.

It’s time for a new society. How can we get this message across to those who don’t want to listen? By hiding it in stories like this 🙂

“If you want to burrow a message into a human mind. Work it into a story” — Jonathan Gottschall

I blog more about this in my 2 other blogs:

#21 Engage in Storytelling and This is your story

Shaping the Future

Continuum is also about shaping your own future. There is a META discussion about this in the show. How the time travel perspective can make you think about shaping your own future. It is all very interesting and philosophical. It presses all my buttons as a Futurist (I am two parts Future-Philosopher, one part Strategist, one part Network Ninja and one part Change-Agent).

Do we have any Contingency plans for our future? Do you?

The Quest for our Fututre. Do we have a Contingency plan?

Louise Morberg – Pratade om sin passion för film. Och trots att hennes mamma sa att hon skulle skaffa ett riktigt jobb har hon utbildat sig till filmvetare och lanserar nu Doc Lounge i Varberg nästa vecka. Gå in på deras Facebook sida!

Samuel Linde pratar om sin passion. Den nya brädspelshobbyn som blommat upp i världen de senaste 5 åren. Det är en helt ny typ av brädspel som även jag är helt såld på. Se hans tal på YouTube nedan.

Michael Sillion berättade för oss “Why are we so Groupish” och hur ska vi använda detta för att bygga ett bättre samhälle ihop. Här är text och bilderna till Mitt Manus. Nu på YouTube med!

Magnus Ohlsson Paglert stod för musiken som Dj Manoltio. Han är också min favorit Spinning instruktör i Varberg på Atletica.

Nyckelpunkter:

1. Förstrå att alla håller något heligt. Även du. Angriper man det heliga försvarar alla det på ett orationellt sätt.

2. Vi måste sluta att hata och demonisera varandra. Inte gå på myten om ren ondska.

3. Groupishness must be managed! Vi måste hålla koll på varandras beteende och säga Aja Baja när någon gör fel. Längtan att vara tillsammans och göra saker ihop är starkare än de flesta andra krafter och det går lätt att utnyttja till fel syften. Alla vill passa in och känna sig behövda.

4. Gå med flera olika sociala grupper med olika intressen och inriktningar.

Dansa till extas tillsammans.
Spela spel tillsammans.
Åk på äventyr tillsammans!
