Knowing exactly what we do, how we do it, precisely who for, and why, matters more than ever

Google ‘the internet is damaging our brains’ and see where this takes you.

Personally I’ve made a decision to ensure that my primary use of the internet, and technology in general, is about being in person with people who value such connection. I use Zoom mostly and sometimes Skype to do this.

Outside of this my criteria for the using the internet and technology is asking whether or not my use enhances the human experience, my own, and the people to whom my life and work matters.

You can read more about what led me to the above here, and here.

There are only two ways to influence human behavior: you can manipulate it or you can inspire it. Very few people or companies can clearly articulate WHY they do WHAT they do. By WHY I mean your purpose, cause or belief – WHY does your company exist? WHY do you get out of bed every morning? And WHY should anyone care? People don’t buy WHAT you do; they buy WHY you do it.
Simon Sinek

In his excellent book ‘Start With Why’ Simon says how is actions to realise why, and what is the results of those actions.

My why is 
Catalyzer for leadership, management, and culture learning, unlearning, and relearning that results in you more fully appreciating and getting the best out of yourself and other people.

More people leading and being accountable through feeling valued, living values, and delivering value is a consequence.

The above lead to better business results at less personal cost, and therefore greater life/work harmony. It follows that communities, cities, states, nations, world become better too.

How I do this I overview here.

What is better business results at less personal cost.
