“If success or failure of this planet and of human beings
depended on how I am and what I do…
How would I be?
What would I do?”
-Richard Buckminster Fuller
Over 18 months ago, someone asked me what advice would I give my 18 year old self.
It’s something I’ve thought a lot about since.
Not because I’m not sure about the advice, but because there is so much I’d like to share with him.
I’m a bit of a nerd in that I collect questions (as well as quotations) and the above to me is a zinger. And one I would advise my younger self to consider often, because in my experience, the answers to it remind me of what’s really important.
It focuses my attention on ‘We’ instead of ‘Me’.
It also makes me think about my wider impact and of the daily habits that I need to cultivate.
Because the irony of the question at a collective level, is that the success or failure of our planet
does depend on us.
How we are and what we do, does determine the results for our planet overall.
Something all leaders should perhaps consider more…
