Character and achievements

19 March 2014 ~ Question of the Day ~ Character and Achievements

Could you name, and give reasons for, someone in this world who’s character and achievements you would really like to emulate?

Not really, and Neo, from “The Matrix” comes close in many aspects.

To be able to see the systems and structures underpinning this reality in which we find ourselves with such clarity that I can create a world in which all experience abundance and freedom.

To be able to communicate in a way that all people realise that we all have the ability to be a Leonardo, or an Einstein, or anyone else. Everyone has the ability. Most get limited by the stories we are born into and believe along the way. Almost all of our limits are self imposed in this sense.

And I get that we all stand on the shoulders of giants.
No one can even learn to speak by themselves, let alone anything else really meaningful by today’s standards.
We are all social beings.
We all live to our highest potential in the social interactions we have with others, and in what we learn from the achievements of others.

Acknowledging that fundamental cooperative social nature of being human and living cooperatively.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) with reasonable security, tools, resources and degrees of freedom, and reasonable examples of the natural environment; and that is going to demand responsibility from all of us - see
