How people live on the Earth, and how we care for the precious eco system, is that optimal? Is this the best we can do?? I think not! We can do a much better job, make the Earth way more beautiful than it is today.
Waiting for a better future though, that will not work. The better alternatives we want, have to evolve, grow from ideas to daily practice.
My proposed approach is simple:
- take a certain subject.
- look at: what is the current situation.
- question: do we want to improve this?
- if yes, then: think of ways to reach the goal.
- select the best ideas.
- see in small but real experiments, what ideas work best in practice.
- see if the best experimental result work in large scale.
- discover the the effects in the long term.
To summarize my approach in one word: optimize.
It can be surprisingly easily to think of better alternatives. Many people have some really good ideas in their heads. More difficult is to research & develop these ideas up to the point where the most successful candidates can be applied on a large scale, in real life.
Most challenging is not finding the better alternatives, but to turn the resistance against change from some people around into a strong and positive force. It is often impossible to have everybody happy about a change. But letting go of the current situation, is necessary if you want to move forwards. We have to give enough care to those who have a loss due to the changes.
Let's apply our ability to create great and beautiful things.
We can work together much better than we have ever done so far.
We should all think of better alternatives, share these ideas, compare them, and apply the most interesting ones in real life experiments.
Will you share your ideas?
Here are mine.
