Smart Strategies for Living in a Planetary Crisis
Announcing a pair of classes on learning how to thrive in an all-encompassing discontinuity.
This is a special announcement that I’m offering two more classes in my series on smart strategies for living in a planetary crisis. If you’re interesting in learning to form personal strategies for ruggedizing your life and succeeding with purpose, these might be for you. Otherwise, stay tuned for the next long-form essay. Thanks!
I am excited to share the next two classes in my series on “Smart strategies for living in a planetary crisis.”
These are the questions we’ll be exploring:
How do we think more clearly about what we really want, as the planetary crisis deepens? What do we value most? How do we judge our own opportunities, obligations and risks in a brittle and unsustainable world? Who do we want to be in a world that’s become very different from what most of us expected it would be?
How do we steer through the fog of complex questions involved in building strategies to succeed with purpose? How do we understand the kinds of transformations all institutions and communities will be forced to undertake over the next couple decades — and how we can judge whether they are preparing to make them, or not? What do they tell us about ruggedizing our lives?
How do we connect with others as we commit to actions, so our commitment becomes a source of community and a force for encouraging others to take the planetary crisis seriously enough? How do we bring the people we love along? How do we build networks for learning and support? How do we push systems to change?
We’re all finding ourselves needing to make critical life choices with limited information. How do we make our decisions themselves more rugged by creating back-up plans for ourselves — diversifying our investments of time, energy and resources? What is wise preparation amidst discontinuity?
These will again be live video classes from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon on Thursdays (U.S. Pacific time). The first is this week, on Thursday, March 31st. The second is next week, Thursday, April 7th. Space is limited.
There will be a recap of the previous classes at the beginning of the March 31st class — and video will be recorded for those who can’t make the live discussions.
Each class will also conclude with 30 minutes for discussion.
