Interesting and relevant. A document, as James McGee points out, "to get you beyond thinking differently but doing differently." A good start, but it seems to me that the objective is to get to the point of, if you will, 'being differently' - to become the changes you want to see in your life. As in, "Allow events to change you. You have to be willing to grow. Growth is different from something that happens to you. You produce it. You live it. The prerequisites for growth: the openness to experience events and the willingness to be changed by them." The commentary is about personal growth, but I see no reason why we should not think of it as applying to social growth as well. It's certainly a much better measure than Gross Domestic Product.
