For those of you who follow me, you know NYT Columnist Thomas Friedman is one of my favorite writers. I learn a lot from him. In his November 28, 2017 column:, “Forget Trump and Discover the World“, he demonstrates how other countries are making big strides in creating a better tomorrow by moving forward. For instance, India is developing its digital 21st century economy and we are missing it. He points out how India is also building a new renewable energy power grid without any US technology.
Oh, and by the way, for those of you who want to preserve coal jobs, this 800-megawatt solar farm “was built with over 5,000 skilled and semiskilled workers,” said Kolli. “We believe the renewable energy sector will create over one million new generation jobs to meet the 175-gigawatt target set by Prime Minister Modi.”
Greenko builds these plants, he added, “in five months using Chinese panels and European inverter-grid integration technologies made in India.” (Notice the absence of U.S. technology in that loop.) Greenko is also making huge strides in battery technology to store solar energy, so it can be used when the sun is not shining, and the company is now in the midst of building the first grid-connected battery storage system integrated with its solar farms.
For me his points are captured in his last paragraph.
So while we’ve been following Trump’s tweets about bringing back “beautiful coal,” India built a billion-user ID network bigger than Twitter and giant solar power plants that are cheaper than coal.
Isn’t interesting how we are focused on how to recapture the past and the rest of the world has focused developing a better tomorrow. Creating a better tomorrow has been the focus of all my work. That better tomorrow is an idealized outcome we must imagine and then create. For our desired future to be realized, the necessary precursors, such as a clean energy power grid and an organization of digital information technology must be in place.
A way to make this happen is …
Practice Paneugenesis using this 4 Step to Process
- Determine Desired Idealized Outcome
- Develop Necessary Precursors to make Desired Outcome Possible
- Optimize the Process to Develop Skills and abilities that Precursors possible, and
- Plot Progress to document, demonstrate, and celebrate Improvement
The world is moving forward toward a better tomorrow. It seems our distractions are causing the US to be left behind.
We can move forward and contribute toward creating a better tomorrow. The first necessary step is to look past what is wrong and imagine what could be, that idealized outcome. We then must roll up our sleeves and work hard toward creating it. As I have documented, moving forward to create more positives, effectively eliminates, makes irrelevant and or effectively prevents problems. In this way, even if problems aren’t a problem, we all get to enjoy the better tomorrow developed.
I look forward to hearing about the progress you make in generating comprehensive improvements by practicing pervasive, reciprocal, selfish, selfless, synergistic acts by practicing paneugenesis. This means you are creating all good so everyone and everything benefits!
