Top 10 Tips for Resilience

Monday 26 March 2012

As most of you know I nominated this year as the 2012 International Year of Resilience because frankly, that's what I reckon large chunks of the world need right now. The twitter feed is #2012YearofResilience. I sent a few of these tips out at the start of the year and have seen a few of them already pop up in the writing of other people which is great. If you find them of value please share them around. Here then are my Top 10 Tips for Resilience: Tip 1 - Be productive, not busy - you cannot be both: Tip 2 - Understand that variations to your expected timelines are likely; Tip 3 - If you haven't thought about a preferred outcome, you have no right to complain when you don't like the outcome you end up with.

Tip 4 - Planning is not execution!  But without it, don't execute;  Tip 5 - Are your expectations realistic?  If so, you'll rarely be disappointed.  If not...;  Tip 6 - Resilience means the ability to bounce back.  From what? From unrealistic expectations and occasional surprises;  Tip 7 - Your Future is a negotiation with yourself and others.  It will almost NEVER arrive in a smooth straight line;  Tip 8 - It might be frustrating but it's probably not really a disaster - think options and then ACT!;  Tip 9 - Feel stuck?  Know that you probably can overcome your current challenge.  It may require persistence and will almost always require a different approach (& remember tip 7);  Tip 10 - Ask for help and then allow others to help in the way they know how to help.  Often our biggest barrier is not asking for help or accepting the assistance that is offered in the way it is offered.
Best of luck

Towards an Advanced Society - the Paradox of Development
Tuesday 30 May 2017
In 2010 I wrote a paper, the summary of which included an assessment of the emerging challenges facing many societies around the world, simply that multinationals failing to pay sufficient dues to enable a society to develop, will see a backlash from which they may not recover. That time is upon us

New Australian Food Labeling Laws Finally Make it to Market
Wednesday 3 May 2017
Some of you may have noticed Federal Government advertising for the Food Labeling Laws. What few people will know is that the model being put out there is pretty much the EXACT model I proposed back in the year 2000. Which just goes to show that to predict the future, sometimes all you have to do is wait. Well not quite but

No, all is NOT Lost!
Monday 27 February 2017
It's been a significantly busy couple of months looking at how Industries and Government Agencies are preparing for change. The Companies versus Climate Change conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in November/December, and a meeting with the Political Science Department at the University of Hawaii (Manoa) in January show that positive action is happening, despite some of the headlines
