Well . . . yeah
Anita Sharpe on Business

Worthwhile magazine was founded on two very simple premises: professionals are demanding that their work lives be as fulfilling as their 'life lives'; and, if the world is going to change for the better, businesses have to lead the way.

So I was struck by two columns in today's New York Times puzzling over the same issues. Writes Matt Miller: 'If the most interesting and powerful jobs are too consuming, then why don't we re-engineer these jobs -- and the firms and the culture that sustain them -- to make possible the blend of love and work that everyone knows is the true gauge of 'success'?'

And, Tom Friedman: 'Is there any company in America that should be more involved in lobbying for some form of national health coverage than General Motors, which is being strangled by its health care costs? Is there any constituency that should be clamoring for a sane energy policy more than U.S. industry?'

Good questions. Great dialogue.

Anita: Worthwhile is teaching a new decision model,new assumptions about life and how to make assertions based off of those [vs. mimicky or coping mechanisms]. Learning theory does not support a 'Tell me what to do' technology, rather it embraces a multi-dimensional approach: you must do it to experience it, you must feel it to understand it and you must believe it to live it.

Robert Schank, a leader in learning theory, states that we should spend 1/3 of our time involved in hands-on activity, 1/3 engaged in computer based instruction and 1/3 with each other in face to face interaction.

Worthwhile and your multi-sensory piece. 1/3 of the time users are interacting with the magazine. The remaining 2/3rds offers up the opportunity for in-office/at home computer/online interaction (1/3) and face to face interaction (1/3)...all with the purpose of transitioning and building individuals lifes.

I would be thinking about how to upgrade my website first. Then begin to think about how to build relationships with my readers. Touch. With the reduction in communities and the lack of time, its hard to find someone to be your warrior any more. But, once someone reaches out..you find someone reaches back. Put your magazine on line. Add interviews so people can go...oh my! I get it now. Insert neuro-emotional equations: a woman = intellectual + emotional + spiritual + physical NOT a job. But it all in plain sight. Create a miracle = make a beautiful smell come out of a computer :)

Wendy: Good comment. What is your thinking on the online multi-sensory piece that we can tap into from work? I'm intrigued. . .

Connecting with people who support your ideas and beliefs and vision. Sharing your dreams and stewarding your feelings. It is about joining a group that helps you live a life that travels, moves you forward that is Worthwhile. Everyone has their own happiness equation.

Worthwhile's delicious taste is in its touch to individuals, and in its reawakening of their senses and desire to live a fuller life. You are their energy activator. You show them what is possible and then provide 'action tools.' A meaningful life includes meaninful work, it is the community of people that will make change happen.

So...where is your on-line multi-sensory piece that we can tap into from work? Maybe we need to be building communities at our offices? Maybe we need you during the day? Did you read the NYTimes today? Living.com looked good.
