Do I have to change?

Climate change is here, now at this moment! This question is challenging for all people, do we work to improve or let the status quo stay? In the last two articles I have been looking at how in this rapidly changing world, asking:

  • What truly matters to you?
  • What are you willing to create for yourself?
  • What skills and structures do need to create what matters to you?

So, when do I make all these changes?

YES Now!

Now is the time to make changes. It has been a long time coming, the rise of authorization, worldwide pandemics, social disruption and pending financial chaos. Where do you find the tools and methods to change; start looking at innovations in, software, hardware, ideas, new strategies and people.

The biggest change that will make a huge impact in your life, is already here. Climate change has been on the horizon for so long many felt it was never coming – too many “the Sky Is Falling” messages led many to believe it was a hoax or fake news.

Climate Change Is Here!

Children’s Playground

I choose this picture of a children’s playground in Queensland Australia. For its our children who will pay the price if we fail to act!

When I was looking for a flood picture to insert into this post I came across all the floods in 2020: China, UK, India, USA, Canada, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia in fact there are to many pictures to show… Every continent was affected. It is a global wake up notice.

I am hope as you read this article that you will commit to transform your personal and company habits, resources and future planning to help transform the local and global understanding of climate change. Create a transformation team to accommodate and lessen climate impact. Because it’s already here. Creating a transformation projects has some risks, will your regular clients like the new formats, look, content and actions? If you don’t change you will lose your relevancy?

It all boils down to “will you still like us” is it a risk, the bigger risk is when you do nothing nobody will like you. As you transition through these changes ask yourself there are so many resources available online. Both local, national and international.

Hungry Polar Bear

As Polar sea ice melts at an increasing rate, polar bears are losing their main hunting grounds and slowly starving. With nowhere left to turn, where do they go? Right to your front door.

Greenland, Arctic Ice and Antarctica are shedding six times more ice than during the 1990s, driving sea-level rise that could see annual flooding by 2100 in regions home today to some 400 million people, scientists have warned. Its getting warmer.

Make a commitment to acting on climate change, accept the challenge to do better, enrol others in the drive to make a change, combat those who deny that it is happening. Science has been under attack, we need to fight back.

Fire Alert!

Forest fires in 2020: Amazon, Australia, Canada, China, India, Europe, Croatia, France, Germany, Poland, Greece, Poland, Spain, Russia, Sweden, UK. USA 12 states The Arctic and in 8 Provinces, Canada.

Have I scared you scared yet? We cannot do this alone. Making changes will take the collaboration of many people and it will have to continue over time. Sometimes people can’t see the tree for because of the massive forest. Or is it the forest for the tree their standing close too. Change is here to stay.

You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.
