To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children,
to leave the world a better place,
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived,
this is to have succeeded.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson


Sustainability – Can you do for your business what Immelt of GE has done? Thursday, May 12 2011 

“When society changes it’s mind, you better be in front of it and not behind it, and  this is an issue in which society changed it’s mind. As a CEO, my job is to get out in front of it because if you’re not out in front of it, you’re going to get plowed under”  – Jeff Immelt, GE

GE, Walmart, Coca Cola, most of the larger players are already realizing the benefits of aligning their people, processes and global realities in their sustainability programs.  They’ve invested million, maybe billions, to learn that you can do well, doing good.

If you’d like Fortune 500 class rewards from your sustainability efforts, without the Fortune 500 budget for it, we need to talk.  We have a common sense approach to sustainability as described by the Institute for Sustainability of which we are plank holders.

Achieve more! Work less! Celebrate Often

A Lesson for us All, Painfully Learned by Osama Bin Laden Monday, May 2 2011 

My loyalty to Country and Team is beyond reproach. I humbly serve as a guardian to my fellow Americans always ready to defend those who are unable to defend themselves. I do not advertise the nature of my work, nor seek recognition for my actions. I voluntarily accept the inherent hazards of my profession, placing the welfare and security of others before my own.

I serve with honor on and off the battlefield. The ability to control my emotions and my actions, regardless of circumstance, sets me apart from other men.

Uncompromising integrity is my standard. My character and honor are steadfast. My word is my bond.

We expect to lead and be led. In the absence of orders I will take charge, lead my teammates and accomplish the mission. I lead by example in all situations.

I will never quit. I persevere and thrive on adversity. My Nation expects me to be physically harder and mentally stronger than my enemies. If knocked down, I will get back up, every time. I will draw on every remaining ounce of strength to protect my teammates and to accomplish our mission. I am never out of the fight.

from the SEAL creed.
